Part 2: New Research on the Impact of Divorce on Children

11685171_s.jpgAs we stated in our last article, the media and general community tend to view divorce as having a negative impact on children. The recent article "Deconstructing the Impact of Divorce on Children" written by Sol R. Rappaport and published in the Family Law Quarterly (a publication of the American Bar Association) suggests that based on current research, it appears the majority 75 to 80 percent of children do not have psychological difficulties post divorce. In fact, most children do well post divorce and do not seem different from their peers whose families are intact. While children may miss having the ideal family and have negative feelings towards their parent's divorce, it is no different than other children who experience other childhood difficulties such as the loss of a parent. Having stressful and challenging events does not necessarily mean that the child will have psychological difficulties.

This, for the most part, is not completely true. The recent article "Deconstructing the Impact of Divorce on Children" written by Sol R. Rappaport and published in the Family Law Quarterly (a publication of the American Bar Association) suggests otherwise.
