Review Claims Divorce Has Little To No Effect On Children

The publication Scientific American has released a review detailing that long-term effects on children of divorce are virtually non-existent. Although anxiety, shock, and anger are normal and prevalent symptoms in young children whose parents have divorced, within a period of two years or so, those symptoms disappear and the children go on to live relatively normal lives.

According to the review, years after a divorce has taken place, small differences were found between children of divorce and those of couples who remained married. The differences account for behavioral factors relating to:

  • Academics
  • Emotional well-being
  • Delinquency
  • Social interactions

Marital discord was also found to have played a role in a child’s well-being; the greater the discord, the higher the likelihood that behavioral issues would appear. The chances of behavioral problems arising later in life were only slightly higher than those seen in adults whose parents remained married. Overall, it was determined that good parenting was the greatest factor in affecting a child’s outlook.
