A Word to the Wise

1-25-2017 – Children suffer great emotional problems from the separation and divorce of their parents. The father-child relationship is weakened and in many cases destroyed
altogether. When separation and divorce occur, The children decide that parents are
not trustworthy, and they usually decide to make choices for themselves. Frequently,
this results in poor decisions about peer relationships, drugs, and friends, as well as
the rejection of authority. All of this sustains a cycle of divorce, remarriage, and
divorce.

1-19-2017 – A Word to the Wise: Evidence from longitudinal research indicates that, on the average, children of divorced parents do worse than children from intact families, even prior to their parents’ divorce.

In a national survey looking at achievement and health problems of stepfamilies, it was discovered that children in stepfamilies show an elevated risk of maladjustment and school failure. In fact, the incidence of emotional or behavior problems for children aged 3-17 in a home with their biological parents was only 8.3 percent; however, the incidence of these problems was 19.1 percent in a single-parent mother family and 23.6 percent in a mother-stepfather family structure.

1-16-2017 – A Word to the Wise: Whether it is because of disease, loss of a parent, or other effects we will discuss, these children all seem to be dramatically affected by the immorality of their parents. Sara McLanahan, a researcher in the area of single-parent families, makes a statement that I feel focuses on the issue at hand. She states: We reject the claim that children raised by only one parent do just as well as children raised by both parents. We have been studying this question fourteen years, and in our opinion the evidence is quite clear: Children who grow up in a household with only one biological parent are worse off, on average that children who grow up in a household with both of their biological parents, regardless of the parents’ race, educational background, regardless of whether the parents are married when the child is born, and regardless of whether the resident parent remarries.
