The concept of "Birdnesting" is becoming more and more popular in the UK and it is an interesting concept that many people have never heard of. The article below briefly outlines the concept and stresses that in order for this arrangement to work, both parents have to have a great deal of trust in one another, as well as a clear line of communication.
Ultimately, any solution that prioritizes the children's wellbeing above everything else is a good idea when it comes to divorce. But perhaps just as important is finding a solution that is realistic and appropriate for each couple's individual situation. Some couples, try as they might, just work better with lots of space between them. Others find it too difficult to separate their opinions of their ex as a spouse from that of a co-parent. And some just don't see eye-to-eye about how to move forward. Birdnesting might be a healthy option for lots of children, but it won't be if the parents involved can't make it work.
