With the increasing rate of number of divorces, around 50 percent of children are living with one of their parents. The proper development of the physical, mental, and emotional characteristics of a child is often thought to be best served when both of the parents are living together in an amicable environment. Parents getting separated through divorce can be a stressful experience for many children.

Sometimes parents who want to get a divorce must rethink about their decision. It is better to look at the issue from the children’s perspective. Many young children are well aware of the changes that are taking place in their family during a divorce. Further, they can be disappointed with the new child custody arrangement and visitation schedule since they cannot spend their day with both of their parents at a time.

Studies have been conducted on the developmental changes due to divorce on different age groups of children. According to some of the studies, it is not uncommon for preschool children to develop a sense of insecurity and fear. Further, they often yearn for their non-custodial parent and experience sleep disturbances. Children in the latency age express their grief and anger openly. Similar kinds of changes are experienced in children in the late latency period, but at an increased rate. The most difficult stage to handle is the adolescent stage. Due to a divorce, sometimes these children are prone to acute depression. Suicidal tendencies and violent reactions are quite common among adolescents.

An experience of decreased parenting associated with separation from one of the parents can create a long term impact on the psychological state of a child. This is particularly true in cases where parents often neglect their children during the post-divorce phase. Some of these negative consequences include increased anger, fear, depression, sleep disorders, insecurity and sense of being powerless. It is always better to counsel such parents regarding their behavior towards their children after separating from the partner.

If you are struggling with issues related to Divorce Effects and Children you would do well to consult an attorney in your jurisdiction to help you learn where you stand legally on this matter and learn about your legal rights and options are.
