The below article is another example of the impact divorce can have on children (specifically daughters). Divorce or separation may unavoidable for some couples (for various reasons) but what is evident the importance of parents remaining amicable for the sake of their children. The need for both parents to remain present and actively involved in their children's lives cannot be overstated.
My research for “Daughters of Divorce” spanned over five years and comprised over 300 interviews of young women who reflected upon their parents’ divorce. The most common themes that emerged from these interviews were trust issues and a wound in the father-daughter relationship. My previous study published in the Journal of Divorce and Remarriage concluded that lack of access to both parents and an inability to deal with conflict in a constructive manner were associated with low self-esteem in young women raised in divorced homes.
