Less psychosomatic symptoms in children who spend equal time with both parents after a separation

 

 

A study of 150,000 children aged 12-15 shows that children who spend equal time with both parents after a separation, experience less psychosomatic symptoms than children who live primarily or exclusively with one parent.

A recent review of the international scientific literature* concludes that shared parenting after parental separation, with significant time spent with both parents, undoubtedly has beneficial effects across a wide range of measures of children’s well-being, such as lower levels of depression and aggression, reduced alcohol and substance abuse, better school performance, better physical health, lower smoking rates, and better relationships with both parents as well as grandparents. In contrast, children living in sole custody with one parent had the worst outcomes.
