Finally, his rosy description of joint custody for kids does not in any way reflect children's own experiences. Let's ask some of those kids, after they are adults and independent, how much they loved having to move every 5-7 days, having two parents with different parenting regimes battle over them, etc., etc. Even where a history of domestic violence or child abuse may not be present, and even where parents both want joint custody, kids often suffer. It is no favor to children to make them split their lives in two. To suggest that with high conflict, there is no problem, is simply specious. All the credible research has concluded the opposite.
