Divorce in family with pre-school or early-school child: consequences and adjustment (Bachelor thesis)

Μαυροχωρίδου, Λυδία/ Mavrochoridou, Lydia

Over the past few decades the forms of family have changed. The one that included grandparents, parents and children has been replaced by those that include two parents and children or one parent and children. The main reason that the singleparent family concerns a great number of people is that it is mainly related to an increase in divorces. Divorce has become a common solution to a dysfunctional marriage. Τhe presence of children can make things more difficult, since a divorce can expose them to risks. After divorce, its consequences appear to both parents and children. On the one hand, parents may experience anger with the former spouse, they may have psychological problems and generally they may be incapable of efficient parenting. On the other hand, children might be angry, frightened that their parents will abandon them, blaming themselves for the divorce. In addition to the first effects, children might experience a number of problems due to divorce on many levels. Specifically, they may have to deal with problems in their emotional, psychological, social and cognitive development. Although, the behavior and reactions of parents, friends, relatives and generally the environment of the child, like school, will help them deal with her/ his parents’ divorce easier and better. The aim of the present study is to examine the consequences of divorce for children and how children can better adjust to this situation. Summarizing, nowadays divorce is very common and can affect children in many ways. The consequences that the children will experience depend on the situations that they are faced with, their personality and their environment. However, knowledge of the best ways to deal with it will help a child of divorced parents evolve into a healthy adult on social, emotional, developmental and psychological levels
