“Children experience less stress when co-parenting’
Children of divorced parents seem to be less stressed out if there is co-parenting. The positive side of this also apply if parents of a bad relationship.
That comes to the fore in a Swedish study among eight-hundred children.
According to researcher Jani Turunen Stockholm University, children lose that when a parent is living, contact with family members and friends of the other parent. He quotes also the earlier studies, which showed that children were concerned about the parent that they are less often seen.
The study was specifically about the stress that children of divorced parents experienced. The stress increases, according to the Swedish researchers, as children with both parents in good contact. That the parents themselves may have a moderate relationship, allows for the stress level of the children according to this research.
