Children And Divorce
Imagine you are 12 years old and the conversations in your house between Mom and Dad are the not the most civil. There has been a lot of yelling and screaming and sometimes it gets so bad that things are flying through the air at one another. This is usually a daily occurrence. The fighting has been like this for maybe a year, less, or more and one of them has finally had enough. Then that dreaded sentence that every child never wants to hear finally comes out of the mouth of one of their parents: I want a divorce. The child sometimes blames him/herself for something they did such as playing too loud or leaving their toys lie around. None the less, divorce has a negative effect on children.

A child may not perform in school up to their potential or a four-point-o student may drop to a straight C student. This may be because of lack of support
