Two Homes, One Childhood: Exploring Co-parenting with an Ex

In the recently-released Two Homes, One Childhood: A Parenting Plan to Last a Lifetime, psychologist Dr. Robert Emery discusses the intricacies of raising children in separated households. Dr. Emery has over 35 years of experience in studying child psychology and how it is affected by divorce.

In Two Homes, One Childhood, Emery discusses the immense emotional toll a divorce can take on parents and how to avoid the same emotional toll it can take on children. He discusses concepts key to maintaining a healthy environment for kids, such as being open to sharing time and clear communication between parents. Emery also encourages parents to develop parenting plans that they can continually work on and alter to accommodate growing kids.

Emery is nationally recognized for his research as well as his other book on parenting, The Truth about Children and Divorce, published in 2004.

While divorces can take a toll on children, they certainly do not have to. The lawyers at Law Office of Andrew A. Bestafka, Esq., have long dedicated themselves to arranging child custody agreements most beneficial to the children.
