Children of Divorce - Part 2

Dr. James Dobson
Dr. Arch Hart
90% of children from divorced homes suffer from an acute sense of shock. And one-third of kids fear abandonment by the remaining parent. Compounding this, 37% of children are even more unhappy five years after the divorce than they had been at 18 months. Time clearly doesn't heal all wounds. Dr. Arch Hart, author of Helping Children Survive Divorce, declares that divorce, after a relationship has been established and the nuclear family has been forged, is actually more damaging to a child than the death of a parent.
