As children grow and family circumstances change, often the less-seen parent desires a modification in the parenting plan that will allow him/her to have more parenting time. This presentation introduces a chart that specifies family domains, questions, and concerns as a tool for integrating family data to support child-centered decision making. We will discuss how the chart organizes clinical information and research about child development and family dynamics to facilitate decisions that support children’s well-being while considering parents’ goals to spend time with their children.
