    Abstract

    This article explores children’s perspectives on post-divorce family life with time-sharing arrangements, focusing on the children’s experiences of dilemmas and constraints, but also on new possibilities. In many ways, the everyday lives of children who commute between two households are double-looped. These children have to be attentive to the routines, expectations, and demands of each household. By assessing their conduct of everyday life, this article elucidates what children do to adapt to and make sense of this double-looped situation. This article examines how differences between households affect children’s ways of understanding themselves and their family lives.
