Divorce: Regular overnight stays with dad are the best for small children / Scheidung: Regelmässige Übernachtungen bei Papa sind das Beste für kleine Kinder

After parents’ divorce, regular overnight stays with dad are best for most young children (Professor Richard A. Warshak)


  • Awareness is growing that also for separated parents shared parenting is best for their children
  • Scientific findings make clear that misinformation and policies around one-sided custody practices have to be revised
  • Double standards regarding shared parenting in relationships and one parent’s full-time presence in case of divorce or separation are causing children to lose their uniquely contributing fathers
  • Babies and toddlers need affectionate and sensitive fathers
  • Children benefit from multiple caregivers that are tender and sensible to their needs
  • Except for mystique beliefs, there is nothing that speaks for mothers to be naturally more suitable to care for children
  • Immediately after separation, day and night time spent with their child should be optimized by both parents, so the children are not losing one of the two loving parents

Nach der Scheidung der Eltern sind regelmäßige Übernachtungen mit Papa am besten für die meisten kleinen Kinder (Professor Richard A. Warshak)


  • Das Bewusstsein wächst, dass auch für getrennte Eltern geteilte Elternschaft am besten für ihre Kinder ist
  • Wissenschaftliche Erkenntnisse machen deutlich, dass Fehlinformationen und Politik rund um einseitige Sorgerechte überarbeitet werden müssen
  • Doppel-Standards bezüglich gemeinsamer Erziehung in Beziehungen und einseitigem Sorgerecht zugunsten eines Elternteils im Falle einer Scheidung oder Trennung führen dazu, dass Kinder ihre einzigartig beitragenden Väter verlieren
  • Babys und Kleinkinder brauchen liebevolle und sensible Väter
  • Kinder profitieren von mehreren Betreuern, die bezüglich ihrer Bedürfnisse lieb und aufmerksam sind
  • Abgesehen von mystischen Irrglauben gibt es nichts, was dafür spricht, dass Mütter von Natur aus besser dazu geeignet wären, sich um Kinder zu kümmern
  • Unmittelbar nach der Trennung sollte Betreuungszeit rund um die Uhr von beiden Eltern optimiert werden, so dass die Kinder nicht einen der beiden liebenden Elternteile verlieren

  • […] Children’s biggest wish is to maintain a healthy and strong relationship with both parents; in some cases, a parent fosters distance or even the child’s rejection of the other parent, despite the deep-seated desire to experience mutual love between them and their both parents (Kruk, 2013, April 25).
