I am curious to know what the peaceful divorce community thinks about the trend towards rotating and alternating parenting time. I have seen some examples in the real world where it seemed to work fairly well; and many others where it seemed like a disaster. I am especially interested in knowing what everyone thinks about it in the context of babies, infants, toddlers, preschoolers, etc. There are a number of situations that I have observed (outside of my practice) where it was agreed to, but where I suspected that there was an imbalance of power, a lack of information or other factors that led one parent to agree despite having an instinct that it was wrong, bad, inappropriate for the particular family, or otherwise not a good idea. Some of these situations seemed to be driven by one parent's interest in a reduced child support obligation. I would also like to know if anyone is familiar with any long term research on the results of these kinds of parenting arrangements.
