After divorce, kids fare better when they visit both parents

According to the American Psychology Association, children can adjust better to divorce when they are able to continue spending significant time with both parents. Children in joint physical custody arrangements typically have fewer behavioral problems, fewer emotional problems, higher self-esteem, and better school performance than children in sole-custody arrangements.

This finding seems to indicate joint physical custody is the preferable custody option for kids after divorce. However, the American Psychological Association claims the custody arrangement is not necessarily the cause of these results. Instead, the ongoing relationship with both parents is to blame.
