I’ve heard far too often of couples delaying a divorce due to the potential negative effects it would have on the children. However, a new study published in Scientific American proves the majority of kids adjust just fine following a divorce.
Researchers from the University of Virginia found that the short-term negative effects on children, such as anxiety or shock, typically disappear by the second year and that children of divorce become well-adjusted adults.
If you’re considering a divorce, don’t let a false reality shape your decision. Your kids will adjust and eventually realize the separation is for the best.
