A child’s life should ideally be blissful and carefree, but that isn’t always the case. Teenagers in particular, go through a lot of physical and hormonal changes. They feel great, planning their future one minute and then looking hopelessly lost and melancholic the next. Peer pressure, parental conflicts, the need to be seen as successful and other factors can put undue pressure on teenagers making them moody and irritable and can cause first signs of depression in teens.
There is an ancient Swahili proverb that says “When elephants fight it is the grass that suffers”. This same can be said of divorce. Divorce is a common phenomenon nowadays and does not carry the same stigma it once used to. Still, when parents divorce, it is the children who suffer the most. Effects of divorce on children is definitely are inevitable.
