  23. 5 types of divorce & their effects on kids
    • Disappearing 
Parent: 

One 
parent
 
leaves 
the 
home 
and
 the
 children 
receive 
litlle 
explanation.

 These
children 
usually
 grow
 up
 suspicious 
of
 people,
 fearing 
that 
their 
partners, 
too, 
would 
leave
 them

    • Surprise 
Divorce:
 
Parents 
often
 seemed 
close 
and 
open,
 but
 without 
warning 
one 
files 
for
 divorce. 

These 
children 
may 
avoid
 intimate 
relationships 
because
 they
 expect 
a
 partner 
to 
be
 unpredictable 
or
 undependable.

    • 
Violent 
Divorce: 

When
 spousal 
abuse
 or 
child
 abuse
 is 
the 
reason
 for 
the 
divorce.

 The
 children 
often 
repress 
conflict 
for 
fear
 of
 violence
 or 
believe
 that
 fighting
 is 
a 
way
 to
 test 
intimacy
 and
 to
 get
 their
 partner’s 
attention.
    • Late 
Divorce: 

When 
parents 
stay 
together 
“for 
the 
children’s 
sake,”

 they
 often
 create 
an
 environment 
of
 veiled 
criticism
 and
 threats,
 unspoken
 anger,
 and
 even
 hatred. 

These 
children 
learn 
to 
suppress 
their 
feelings
 to
 survive
 and
 equate 
love 
with
 suffering 
in 
silence. 



    • Protect‐the‐Kids 
Divorce: 

When
 parents
 decide 
to 
protect 
children 
by
 with holding 
information 
about 
the
 real 
reasons 
for 
their 
divorce.

 Children
 eventually 
find
 out
 the 
truth
 and
 deal
 with 
bitterness 
and
lack 
of 
trust 
because
 of 
the 
dishonesty 
of 
their 
parents.
