Divorce and Separation - A Childís perspectiveWritten by Jenny Clair
It is always children that suffer most when a marriage breaks down and separation or divorce is imminent. Children of divorcing parents often witness arguments even rows and this has a strong effect on any child. Children do not understand why parents argue and cannot relate to rows during build up to a divorce or seperation. They become confused and insecure and their life seems as if it is in turmoil. Here we explain some of issues from a childís perspective.
Children do not understand why parents no longer love each other and cannot stay together. Prior to divorce or separation they have only known that happy caring family environment which they were brought into. To them their world has been turned upside down and they cannot see why. If parents loved each other in past, then why canít they love one another in future.
Children often believe that they could be reason for a break up in a marriage which can result in long term damaging guilt complexes. A childís character often changes during divorce or separation when things are not normal at home. Children can be very sensitive to emotional environment.
During divorce or separation many children become disruptive at school, argumentative at home and some even go into a recluse. This can be a very lonely time, particularly if they are an only child. Their friends are not going through what they are emotionally. Hence they feel that they are odd one out all of a sudden and do not know how to cope with situation. All they want is for their life to go back to a normal family life where parents donít argue and row as it may have been before stress of divorce or seperation.
When a couple decide that divorce is only option and separation is a necessity, children are again ones that it effects most. They are told that they will be with one parent one day and other next. How are they supposed to form any kind of routine ? This can often result in children not sleeping in their own beds as they prefer comfort and security of being with a parent. Children often feel insecure and are most vulnerable even at school when they listen to their friends planning family outings and holidays.
