Hollywood, the famous neighborhood in Los Angeles, California, may be known for several things, films and movie stars to name a few, but it is currently responsible for spreading a trend among recent divorcees: bird nesting. Bird nesting is when a recently divorced couple agrees to share a common dwelling by alternating living in it with their children. The children remain in the home, while the parents move in and out according with their visitation schedule
While divorce can be hard on spouses, it can be even more difficult for children. In many cases, however, both parents can agree that caring for their children is the most important task. Even in cases where the relationship is more contentious, many divorcing parents in California work hard to keep their children from being exposed to marital strife or issues with divorce negotiations.
