When parents get divorced it is usually an emotionally challenging experience for the family as a whole.
Divorce does not always have the same impact on all children, and will differ according to the personality and temperament of a child.
The impact of divorce on a child can be compared to an amputation and can touch the deepest sense of a child. Children usually thrive on stability and routine and when parents’ divorce, this changes dramatically. It is usually also part of extreme emotional instabilities within the family structure and relationships, which in turn also often lead to trauma for a child.
