Shared parenting bill is best for families

This is a reprint of an article written by Linda Reutzel for the June 7, 2016 issue of the St Louis Post Distpatch. In a future blog post I will discuss how this new change to Missouri Law will actually work.  At its core, the shared parenting bill that overwhelmingly passed the Missouri Legislature and heads to Gov. Jay Nixon is common sense: Children need two parents, not just one, especially in instances of divorce. What's more, HB 1550 doesn't stop at common sense. It's based on a growing body of evidence showing that children desperately want and need shared parenting, not the current status quo of sole custody, when their parents divorce. Plus, this bill represents a solution for all. It doesn't favor women. It isn't partial to men. Instead, it's family-friendly and encourages judges to give children what they most want and need -- shared parenting. With shared parenting, the roles that mothers and fathers both play in their children's lives receive equal respect, and rightfully so.
