Researchers found that children whose parents divorced would fight harder in learningmath and social skills. This is probably because it is influenced by a sense of anxiety,loneliness and sadness they experienced.
Studies conducted over 5 years compared the emotional and academic development ofchildren whose parents divorced and who do not. A total of 3585 children involved in thisstudy whose age was about 4 years.
“The children will experience a decline in math scores and problems with interpersonalskills, they are more vulnerable to feelings of anxiety, loneliness, low self-esteem andsadness,” said study chairman Hyun Sik Kim of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, asquoted from Dailymail.
Hyun Sik Kim said the problem will usually appear once the divorce begins. The resultsof this study have been reported in the American Sociological Review.
Researchers reveal the setbacks and problems that arise will be greater when the children experience the stress of seeing his parents blame each other or arguing with each other during a divorce.
“unstable living conditions experienced by children whose parents divorce also mayinterfere with the child’s social relationships,” he said.
The results of this study add further evidence to show adverse effects to children whenparents divorce, especially if the divorce is done is not good. Studies in Britain show the children of divorce 5 times greater risk of suffering mental problems.
