Many parents don't seem to understand that they are molding our next generation and that our children take what they learn at home and what they learned growing up and apply it to their lives and how they will raise their children.

Many times when children have divorced parents, they suffer from growing up too rapidly. The children’s main care giver, whichever parent the child lives with, must assume more responsibility upon becoming a single parent. We know that one parent assuming more responsibility can lead to a bad relationship due to lack of time spent together, but it can also prevent the child from completely acting as a child. The cooking, cleaning, and child care now falls on one parent instead of two. This results in a child with divorced parents caring for themselves.
Children can be separated from their parents by a multitude of causes like death, adoption, incarnated, foster care, substance abuse and others. Children at the age of three years old or younger are very sensitive to the issue. Parents play an important role in our lives. Our parents help us form who we want to become and our own identity. When children are separated permanently or for an extended period of time from their parents, this can cause a child to respond to the situation in a negative manner (McIntosh, 2010).
