The Impact of Divorce on Children Abstract The goal of this study is to determine the psychological effects divorce has on children. Most of our society, through the media, believes that divorce has both a short-term and long-term impact on children. Children of divorce parent have a strained relationship with their parents and other nuclear family members, which can lead to unusual stress that interferes with their normal development. Through this study, I will analyze scientific research on the negative impact divorce has on children. With the research, hopefully it can be determined if adverse effects can mitigate with interventions and a positive relationship with both parents being maintained. The child’s dealings with the non-custodial parent are as important as interacting with the custodial parent. The Impact of Divorce on Children References Gilman, J., Schneider, D., & Shulak, R.
