Child custody: kids need Dad too

82278583_s.jpgParenting decisions can be tricky, and Missouri parents might be among the thousands of Americans preparing to navigate the legal system in a court of family law. Historically, it seemed that, during child custody proceedings, it was widely believed that a child was better off living primarily with one parent, often the mother.

Even if parents do not see eye to eye or there is bad blood between them regarding personal matters, establishing a parenting plan can be a helpful way to ensure that a child's well-being is the priority of both parents.

87334894_s.jpgMissouri parents are probably preparing to file their annual tax returns.

The importance of a father's role in a child's life is well-established, but recent research suggests that fathers who actively participate in the lives of their children provide benefits that go beyond parenting. When a child is born in Missouri, establishing paternity is an important way to ensure that fathers can be involved with their child's future. A new study suggests that paternal involvement is far more important than a few weekend visitations a month.
