Quote from: chrismoneystir on July 31, 2019, 03:40:13 PMMy parents got a nasty divorce when I was 11-years old. I would see my dad during certain weekends and we stayed with him during the summer. I hated it, but mainly because my mom constantly would talk bad about my dad.If it is best for your son to primarily stay with your mom, I would just explain to your son that this will be best for him. I could see where a 50/50 split could work out well if you live fairly close to your ex, but if that is going to be contentious, I would just give primary caregiver to your ex. Unless of course, that is not a safe option.I think you going with the most reasonable approach is smart. The more you two can be friendly with each other and work through disagreements in a friendly matter, the easier it will be on your kid.I've never heard of bird nesting. I think the idea is solid, especially at first. But I'm interested to see if this would work long term. Especially if at least one person starts dating and ends up finding another partner.
