Dealing with conflicts between parents during divorce causes children to lose their sense of security. Children feel secure when they are with both of their parents. If this feeling of security is diminished, children will have a slight possibility of developing psychological disorders. Children with divorced parents tend to be alone or have fewer friends because of the separation of their parents. Divorce and separation are emotional processes in which the child is affected just as much as are the parents.
Divorce will affect a child varies from their age. If the children's parents get divorced when they are nine or younger, then the children will tend to blame themselves for the divorce and think that their parents will eventually get back together.

If they are between the ages of nine and thirteen, then the children will start to become more dependent and have a feeling of betrayal from their parents for getting divorced. When divorce will affect a child the most is when they are in a serious relationship, they will start to think that it will fail or they will eventually separate.
What did they do? Therefore, it is an inequity for parents to divorce with children, because their kids' lives will be impacted tremendously. A separated mother and father has a dissatisfying affect on children. It is very hard for a child, who has been raised by both parents; to one day only have majority access to one parent. This is a situation through which kids develop inaccurate thoughts as to why their parents are not together.
Parents do not realize in how hard it is for a child to deal with a divorce from their parents. In addition parents should understand that the divorce is affecting more their children than their personal lives. In a divorce may lead a child to have dramatically changes in a daily live; and the divorce can be stressful, sad, and confusing for kids of all ages.

A divorce of parents can lead children to have loss of knowledge, skills, and resources from parents. Those children with divorced parents are at risk of getting bad grades even dropping out school due to the fact that they have been alternating between their parents’ houses.

Many parents never bother to think of how divorce will affect their children. Children are impacted by divorce in multiple ways. For the most part the impact is negative. Children feel they have to choose a side to get love from a parent. They are taught to lie and to keep secrets from one parent in order to protect another parent.

When a married couple gets divorced, children in the family have trust issues, teens become rebellious, and the couple themselves often go into severe depression or sadness.

When it comes to living with divorced parents, it can be hard on children if their parents have different discipline rules and raise them differently than each other. A child who is living with non-biological parents, such as a step father or mother, is also more likely to suffer from physical and sexual abuse. Even though divorce seems like it will do nothing good towards children, there are parents who can still act civil towards each other and agree on certain things which ensures their children will generally be more happy. Throughout high school and elementary school, I have had many friends who have divorced parents and it has affected them positively and negatively. Sometimes when parents get divorced their children feel as if it was their fault and they wonder if they could have done anything to make their parents fall back in love again.
When thinking about divorce and separation your first thought is about the children, and most forget how much it effects the parents as well. Yes the main concern is the children, but you can’t really say who’s taking the biggest impact. I like to show you the effects that divorce have on parents as well as children. During separation people tend to forget about the feelings of the other parent the connection they have with their child or children and how the time will affect them now as well as later. Divorces hurt people motivations and emotions, as well as children developments.
