Report Financial Pressure - People Splitting Up. in House prices and the economy Posted July 29, 2009 I agree with the sentiment that children are negatively effected by divorce not just cause of the obvious, but becuase of the fact they miss out on the childhood, with friends, neighbours, sporting activities.Children need routine and buggering off every weekend to see new sets of friends spending times in bedrooms which havent got their favourite toys or ones which have to stay at one parents etc. Its ridiculous... and no one worries about this, not even the child. they sporting venues nearby and parks... the social skills all disappear... children need stability and all divorce breeds is instability. thats my opinion. I too was the VICTIM of a divorce when my parents seperated when i was 7 I wouldn't wish it on my WORST enemy! Its horrible... least of all you just DONT understand at that age, only when you get to 14+ do you get told what really happened and the reasons for it all!!! Good post thank you. This is exactly what I've been talking about.
