The Relative Nature Of The Word “Best”
“Good, better, best. Never let it rest. ‘Til your good is better and your better is best.”
The word “best” is a relative one. One person’s best may look very different than another person’s. “Best,” is also subjective in the eyes of the person evaluating the work or efforts of a person. When determining what is best, it’s difficult and can be vague.
When it comes to child custody and divorce the legal standard is called “the best interests of the child.” Determining what is best is a difficult task. Even two married parents who have a relatively healthy marriage have disagreements on what is best for each child in the family. When divorce is involved, the tension surrounding what is best for each child is escalated.
