Divorce is a difficult time for the family. Divorce introduces huge changes into the lives of most children: direct or indirect involvement with parental conflicts, changes in where they live and sometimes where they school, changes in parental-child relationships because of reduced parental contacts, parental authority. Divorce is a great loss for most children. The centre of their world – their family- is torn apart. They are often caught in an emotional roller coaster. They may experience a range of emotions such as sadness, denial, anger and even self-blame. Research shows divorce increases the risk for emotional, psychological, social and academic amongst children. This is a legitimate concern for children, parents and the community.
