News&Buzz: Coparenting arrangements

Research from the Australian Institute of Family Studies breaks down co-parenting arrangements there as follows:

--34 percent: Weekends or alternate weekends with non-custodial parent
--26 percent: Sees non-resident parent less than once a year
--6 percent: Equal time with both parents

That leaves 36 percent of children in other arrangements. If you're among those with other coparenting arrangements, how do you handle it, and how does it work?

Research based on interviews with 500 Australian families.

I've got single parent friends who do one week on, one week off. Another's 4-year-old is with dad Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, but htey're nit overjoyed with this right now. Another has her kids at at dad's Thursday after school through Sunday afternoon -- only disrupts one school day.
