Childhood Divorce

Different age groups react differently to DivorceInfancy/Toddlerism--The child doesn't go through the distress of losing a father or mother. Pre-Schoolers who have divorced parents do just as well as those who have traditional families (Short, 2002).Pre-School--Children are more effected by Divorce because they have a better idea of what is going on. It may even be tougher for pre-schoolers than for school aged children (Short, 2002).School Age--Influence of parents can be substituted by that of teachers, or peers. Its still hard for them, but not to the extent of pre-school children. Adolescents-- It is hard to react at first, but as time goes on many adolescents find it easier to deal with the divorce of their parents. Jerome L.

    My parents were divorced when I was an infant/toddler. I never felt the pain of losing my dad. I always wondered about that.
