    Being as much as possible with both parents is only beneficial to the childn when the parents establish working co-parenting relationship, with good communication, without permanent conflict. Therefore, it is disingenuous on the court’s and GAL’s part to postulate, regardless of the case at hand, that children always NEED both parents. It is even more disingenuous to believe that it is in the children’s best interests to force them against their will to be with a parent they fear and reject.
    Therefore, the courts should study the psychological literature a bit more carefully and understand that “be with both parents” should not be a dogma.
