The Child & Family Blog

The articles are written by or with top child and family researchers in child development and based on current research published in academic journals. Some co-parenting topics include child support, the benefits of co-parenting, the concept of "community of care" that extends care to grandparents and other caregivers, parenting in high-conflict divorces, and research on the importance of overnight stays with fathers to very young children.
