Divorce is an emotionally taxing situation. Many divorces result in arguments,
disagreements, and bitterness between spouses. Unfortunately, with so
much going on between divorcing partners during the process, the opinions
and feelings of shared children are often swept under the rug once the
divorce concludes. However, recent studies have shown that children who are able to spend
time with both parents after a divorce tend to be happier and healthier.
One study published by the America Psychological Association states that
compared to children who are only granted access and interaction with
one parent, children who are able to develop deeper relationships with
both adjust to post-divorce living situations better. A psychologist from
the AIDS Administration/Department of Health and Mental Hygiene in Baltimore
commented that living arrangements do not have as big of an impact as
the amount of time children were able to spend with each parent.
Research also showed that fathers and mothers each bring crucial elements
to a parent-child relationship, making each parent extremely valuable
to a child’s growth process. For example, the study revealed that fathers helps children develop impulse
control, memory, and situational flexibility.
Additionally, a great deal of evidence showed that children who receive
attention from both parents and develop relationships with each usually
have better academic and economic outcomes in the future.
