The partners involved in a divorce are affected to a large extent, though they have decided to love apart. Many of the times when a divorce occurs, the reason for the divorce is something that can be easily overcome by counseling and also giving adequate time for the person to change. In this era of instant messages and instant results, we people do not have the patience to wait and make sure that the results that we need are possible or not.

Many people take the decision to divorce in an angry mood and then go through with the procedure just because they do not want to go back on their word. This causes a lot of trauma to the couple and also their family. The family of the affected couples includes their parents and siblings. The members of the family who are affected to the largest extent are the children of the couple. This is because the children are the ones who are the closest to their parents and now they have to split their love as their parents are not together anymore.

These are various changes that can occur in children because their parents are divorced. This article lists the various ways in which the children of the divorced couple are affected by the divorce.

1. Confusion and disbelief:

The affected child has utter confusion over what has happened and does not know what to make of the things happening around it. The parents who were together for many years have spit and the child does not know the consequences of the divorce and this in turn leads to the confusion in the child. This confusion and the disbelief are the first signs that the child is affected severely by the divorce of the parents.

2. Rebellion:

Many children whose parents are divorced go into a stage of rebellion. These children may even become anti social elements. In fact many of the children whose parents are divorced go into this stage because they do not have a proper family and this causes the child to rebel against the parent who is with the child and also rebel against the care taker or even the society as a whole. This is especially true in families where the divorce was a result of various kinds of abuse.

3. Depression:

This is a sign that is seen in almost every child in the immediate phase after the divorce. The child does not talk to anyone. The child does not eat much and will also be very quiet. The child does not seem to be interested in anything. These are the most common signs of depression in the child.

4. Anger:

Some children who are older may become angry at everything in sight. The child will especially be angry at the parent who caused the divorce and will also be angry at all those related to the divorce.

These are all some of the common effects seen on a child that has been affected by the divorce of the parents.
