Because of the opioid crisis in America, grandparents are being called to the forefront to take care of children when parents fall prey to addiction or succumb to overdoses.

In Texas and other states, child custody is often given to grandparents or other family members when parents cannot care for their kids.

Pros and cons of latest child custody arrangement: Bird nesting

Bird nesting is a living arrangement that is gaining popularity among couples with children, and who have gotten divorced in Texas and elsewhere around the country. Simply put, the couple maintains a single home in which the children live, while the parents alternate who stays with them.

However, before immediately agreeing to bird nesting, experts have highlighted some potential positive and negative aspects of the situation for couples to consider.

Many family experts are advocating a move away from the traditional custody arrangements and are more often suggesting shared parenting arrangements.
