How does divorce affect your child?

Follow Us

Regardless of whether your children are young or older, divorce is not easy on them.  Caring and considerate parents always want to reduce the impact on their children.

Reports indicate that most children suffer a sense of loss.  This sense of loss can manifest in several ways, depending on the child’s age and how their parents handle the divorce themselves.  It has been noted that young children may regress in their sleeping patterns or perhaps their toilet training.  They have been known to throw temper tantrums.  School-age children, including teenagers, may become depressed or rebel against discipline. They may stop eating or overeat.  They may also lose sleep or sleep all day long.

Parents need to take an active role in easing their child’s pain by reducing negative feelings.  If you are going through a divorce and have questions regarding your children and their best interests, talk to an experienced Riverside Divorce attorney who can help you and your children through this emotional time.
