83). Although it is a relatively common occurrence in today’s society it is still a stressful situation and entails a number of changes for children and their families. The impact on the child/ren’s (family’s) microsystem may have a ripple effect; therefore the stressors need to be addressed. Information has been included on how to help their child/ren with divorce in general and the types of behavioral changes parents and/or caregivers can watch out for.

The additional cause is having poor emotions. Akan Usakli’s research (2013) found that the most common problems seen in single parent families’ children are depression, stress, loneliness, aggression, compliance, smoke, alcohol, narcotics. For example, the stress single parent children risk to fight other people and after then they will grow up by being aggressive. The sensitive emotion of the single parent children can lead them to wrong
This can be a difficult and stressful time for the other spouse to go through, especially knowing you have to look after your child yourself without any support from their partner. This can also affect the spouse financially as she will have to financially provide for the child as well as herself. This can lead; to depression and other forms of destress. It is important that the child knows what has happened and where his father has gone. According to Dawson (2013) ‘Telling ‘the truth’ opens doors for further questions about prisons and creates a space to explore children’s wishes regarding parental contact and helps them deal with stigma.’
Despite this, the importance of a healthy environment is emphasized, specifically in families with young children. Thus, parents are often forced to decide between the health and safety of their children when they encounter domestic violence and financial instability. Furthermore, it is predicted that the children raised in homelessness will be unable to escape that way of life. The continuation of this trend reflects the effects of inadequate education and the common development of unstable mental health in youth (CMHC, 2003). As awareness of the growing homeless population increases the governmental and local efforts to address this issue also
In the case of Postnatal depression mothers are said to have a more negative affect towards their child, the parents consciousness begins to fade as well as a change in their behaviour. Parents that are seriously affected by this disorder are less likely to interact with their child in a loving way, according to (Leckman et al., 2007: 95) They also seem less prone to interact with the infant in a special way, calling him/her by a nickname, imagining the infant 's future, or idealizing the child. Taking into consideration the lack of affection during postnatal depression there have been many studies that specifically demonstrate the connection between this
There is a huge impact of separation and divorce on young people, children of divorced parents tend to have triple problems, drug uses and crimes however; drug uses and alcohol are the most common problems, which have a huge danger on teens and children. Divorce does not only affect young children but also in their teens and 20s. A very recent survey shows that, problems with drink and drugs played a huge part in children’s lives, 14% admitted that they started drinking alcohol, or more alcohol than they used to, while 13% considered taking illegal drugs because of their parents separation or divorce (Edmunds, 2014, p.1). During a divorce some children go through a difficult time, which might lead to drugs and alcohol and this is another huge problem, many young people admitted that their parents’ divorce or separation actually made them alcoholic or do drugs including marijuana, inhalants, cocaine, uppers, hallucinogens, crack or sedatives. When children go though a divorce they just want to forget what is happing and run from their reality by doing drugs or drinking alcohol.
It is imperative to spread an awareness on the resilience gap of these abused children and to educate communities on how to create environments that foster resilience for these children. One of the contributing factors of resilience is for these children to have a stable and caring relationship with an adult, which is not always available for these children, especially those that are removed from their home for safety reasons and are bounced between homes; however, it is something that can be created with time and effort. There are existing mentoring programs, but more research needs to be done to ensure their reach is catching the needs of these abused children, perhaps reevaluating existing programs and expanding them to ensure the needs of this vulnerable population are met; hence creating that stable, caring
“The age of the adolescent plays a role on how much the child will be impacted by the transition to a stepfamily. Around the age of ten years old is when I typically see potential conflict between child and stepparent starting to form. Parents and stepparents must carefully think about the mental well being and health of the child being affected in the divorce process because it can be very traumatic for the children. If decision making is done appropriately than transitional family structure can be beneficial to the child,” Dr. Pitts said.
In this essay we are going to discuss the causes and effects of divorce on children. Divorce is a very painful process for both the children and the parents. We are going to start by looking at the causes of divorce. These causes vary from one family to another therefore we are going to discuss the most common causes.

Abstract In today’s world, divorce may be seen throughout different cultures and ethnicities. Attitudes and behaviors may change in children when they experience parental divorce. It is shown that children living in single-parent families exhibit a low level of education (Raley, Sweeney, & Wondra, 2015). Typically, children live with the mother after parental divorce.
Glenda Riley, a source from Social Issues in America: An Encyclopedia, states that United States is the country with the most divorces (Riley, 2013). This affirms that divorce is rather commonplace. In contrast, some Americans believe that divorce undermines the norms and goals of their society (Riley, 2013). Here, Riley’s notion affirms that there are adverse effects of divorce since the feeling of rejection makes separated people or their children feel ashamed. Another major part of Riley’s argument that undeniably proves that divorce is difficult is the effect that it has on children.
Parents know their own child best and the childminder have a general knowledge of childâ€TMs developments. Between parents, childminders and the child, if the child is going to expand well, together they must trust and respect each other. Occasionally, parents may have had dreadful experiences during their education so when their child unites with a particular group setting, all of those previous memories may return. Due to
The rising deaths and DCFS cases is a testament to the disservice our nation is doing to neglected and abused youths. Once kids are placed in the foster care system, they are often moved from one placement to another which may negatively impact all aspects of their lives that are critical to success in later life such as school, social relationships, and environmental/community influences. This constant separation and loss may lead youths to feel hopeless, and resent social interactions as they feel that social relationships are extremely fragile. This affects group treatment as individuals may drop-out of treatment due to a new placement, or decline to actively participate as they feel hopeless and feels distrustful of everything around them. When children and youths cannot trust their caregivers for reassurance, they have no where to turn but the public.
