Non-divorced vs. divorced children, is there a difference?
There are some researches that says there is, and it is not becuse of the result of the divorce itself but as a result of the reduced social support from the parents and destructive interparental conflict.
So what is social support? Social support is having family, friends and people to trust and rely in terms of problems or crisis. These people will give a positive advice and a better focus on things.
And what is destructive interparental conflict? It refers to disagreement between parents and co-parents. This disagreement does not result in reconciliation but to antagonism.
