Hello, quick question, does the way a child’s parents handle divorce contribute to their behavioral problems?

Wayne Stocks says:

Dani,

I will do my best to provide a quick reply. :) The simple answer to your question is yes. It does make a difference how parents act during and following the divorce in terms of a child’s adjustment to the divorce. A child who is witness to constant bickering and fighting during and after the divorce is not likely going to adjust as well as one whose parents find a way to get along for the children’s sake. That said, it is important to note that how parents handle the divorce is not the only factor that affects a child’s reaction and outcome. In other words, parents can do “everything right” and divorce is still a traumatic time for a child a a great loss. No matter how well parents handle it, divorce still hurts. I hope that helps. Let me know if you need anything further. Thanks for reading DivorceMinistry4Kids,

Your e-publications are wonderful for parents going through this difficult time. I work with adults and children that find themselves in this predicament. Since your ministry is positively helping these children, I thought I would mention to you my offer. In my highly acclaimed book, The 7 Fatal Mistakes Divorced and Separated Parents Make: Strategies for Raising Healthy Children of Divorce and Conflict, I reveal strategies parents can use to minimize the effects of divorce on their children. Currently, I am offering my book FREE on Amazon Kindle through December 7th. You can download your free copy here: http://amzn.to/TIRGz4. My hope is that many parents will utilize this free resource and help raise the healthiest children possible. Feel free to share the link to others as my greatest wish is to get the message out to as many as possible.
