Divorce and parenting

A large U.S. study by researchers at the University of Alberta compared parenting practices in 208 divorced households to those in 4,796 intact ones. The study looked at three different measures of parenting behaviour - nurturing, consistent and punitive parenting - and found no differences between divorced and stably married parents either before or after a divorce had occured.

Hi John,
Parenting can be hard enough without a solid parenting plan to help guide you through some of the potential pitfalls. Without a solid plan, your parenting skills may be put to the test more than you wish they would be and you may wind up making some awkward decisions that could greatly affect your family. With a comprehensive plan for parenting and raising your family, however, you can be a little more comfortable and a lot more prepared when it comes to raising your children. :)
