For Massachusetts co-parents, deciding on a parenting schedule is one of the most significant measures to take soon after a divorce or separation. More than just overnights, parents must consider many aspects of their kids' schedules like school events, medical appointments, meal times, extracurriculars, holidays, bedtimes, and more.
Events thrown into chaos, conflict sprouting from everyday conversations, and Massachusetts children being used as messengers - these are all symptoms of when parents lose sight of the true purpose of co-parenting communication: raising happy children in a healthy environment.
Researchers have discovered a possible link between Massachusetts divorce and childhood obesity, especially among boys. The researchers looked at health data from school nurses on more than 1,000 third grade kids (about 8 years old) at 127 different schools in the Scandinavian country.
