Recently, Minnesota parents may have been abuzz with lively debates over the pros and cons of various parenting tactics in light of Vikings star Adrian Peterson's legal troubles related to whipping his son. This issue happens to coincide with the 20th anniversary of Attachment Parenting International, a group that actually supports certain levels of corporal punishment for children.
Aside from the punishment issues, local parents debate countless other issues, such as the extent of breast feeding, educational choices and how much time a kid should spend in front of a video screen. Given the myriad of choice that a parent can make, many wonder what type of authority they will have over such things after a divorce. The answer lies in the child custody and parenting agreement worked out between the parents and the court.
