THE BAD NEWS
Every divorce is different, the circumstances are different.
The one thing that is always the same is the suffering of the children.
The following statistics and websites help remind us all that
their suffering is not temporary but lifelong and
cripples their lives in ways we may not think of.
The child of divorce is six times as likely to suffer a serious illness.
One out of three spends a lifetime in and out of drug dependency
programs, psychiatric treatment and or confinement.
They are 70% more likely to be suspended from school.
When the divorce occurs between the ages of 3 and 6 they never
recover academic proficiency.
They are nearly five times as likely to live in poverty all their lives.
They are three times as likely to be divorced themselves.
"Three out of four teenage suicides occur in households
where a parent is absent."
The following websites focus on research
On Science not religion.
We include them to spotlight the harm suffered by the children of divorce,
and to motivate people to visit the Mom's pages, the Dad's pages, and especially
the rebonding pages.
We hope and pray the above links motivate people to visit the Mom's pages,
the Dad's pages, and especially
the rebonding pages..
