This 1993 essay, based on remarks delivered to the Association of Family & Conciliation Courts, defends joint custody as realistic and beneficial. It discusses the facts that are often ignored by joint custody's detractors, and describes why some social scientists are reluctant to support joint custody.
Dr. Warshak illustrates conventional custody's harmful impact on children by analyzing a parody of Jingle Bells that is currently popular among boys. He then argues for a cultural and legal presumption of joint custody, which he sees as our best hope for alleviating the problems experienced by divorced families.
