There’s a new lab focused on parenting at the University of Maine: the Parenting Relationships Research Lab. One of the areas of focus there is on understanding the different forms of co-parenting, which can include everything from divorced couples sharing parenting duties, to grandparents raising their grandchildren, to other blended family situations. We will learn about what makes these kinds of parenting relationships work or not work well, and their effects on children.
