States that “It is important to bear in mind that children often experience a mix of seemingly contradictory feelings, including sadness, anger, fear, guilt and confusion.” Parents should understand the child’s situation because it’s very difficult for them to accept and adjust and the parents should explain to the child the situation to avoid the child on blaming his/her self on the separation of his/her parents.

Less opportunity is to come their way since they might as well lost love and proper communication since they become anti-social because of the separation they
Studies have shown that in these cases the male is often the one inciting the violence while women and children are the victims of his anger as he seeks to exert his dominant role.
