Conflict Hurts Children

Dr. Robert Hughes, Jr., Ph.D. of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign wrote a paper on the impact of divorce on children. He concluded, in part, that children in high-conflict families, whether intact or divorced, tend to fare worse than children of parents that get along. Dr. Hughes also notes that some studies have found children in nonconflictual single parent families fare better than children in conflictual two-parent families. The conflict between parents prior to divorce also affects children negatively, while post-divorce conflict has a strong influence on children’s adjustment, Hughes says.
