I wish my parents had heard this advice when they divorced, I think the first year of their divorce might have gone a little smoother for my brother and I. Luckily my brother and I were very resilient and able to bounce back within 6 months of the divorce. When I was a child I couldn't understand why my parents needed to live apart but as I got older and now that I'm an adult, I am grateful to my parents for getting divorced. Our home life would have been much more stressful and over the long run would have done more damage to my brother and I. Every family is different, these tips may not work for everyone but they may for others.

I totally disagree with this article. I realize every family is different. But I personally do not believe joint physical custody is good for ANY child. My kids are living this right now. They live with me 21 days out of the month and their dad 10 days. (he has them one week on Wed/Thurs - the following week Thurs/Fri/Sat). They love their dad but they cry every single time they have to leave our house to go there for overnights. Kids need stability, security. Flip flopping between two homes does not provide that. It's also a lie that kids are"resilient and bounce right back." I call "bullcrap" on that one. I've been divorced three years. My kids still cry for their dad and I to live together, even after counseling. There is anger and confusion for kids of divorce. What they need is a stable homebase with generous visitation for the non-custodial parent.
