Shared child rearing in nuclear, fragile, and kinship family systems: Evolution, dilemmas, and promise of a coparenting framework.
Excerpt: “This chapter examines the vital but overlooked importance of coparenting coordination and collaboration for families and in children’s lives…three main sections in this chapter…why coparenting and marital systems in the family are not the same…major research findings form studies of coparenting in nuclear families—and, where available, in fragile families in which parents are not married as well as in extended kinship systems…how a coparenting framework might be enlisted to guide program and policy efforts…” (p. 77)
