Dear Lily V.

I am impressed by you post, “How Does Divorce Affect Children?” because as someone who has divorced parents everything you said was true. I was also impressed with your post because divorce can have a big affect on kids because they may start to ask if it was their fault their parents got a divorce.

One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is, “They are more likely to make risky and sometimes dangerous decisions.” I think this is stood out to me because I think it’s crazy how your parents decisions can affect you and the choices you make.

Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I like how you talked about the effects of children on divorce parents. I liked how you talked about it because a lot of people may think that it doesn’t affect the children.

Dear Lily,

I am fascinated by your post, “How does divorce affect children?” because all the things you mentioned I couldn’t agree more. It is true that many kids are affected by their parents divorce.

One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Divorce can cause children to be more likely to have a mental illness and cause lots of distress.” I think this is very serious because everyone’s mental health is very important and should be taken seriously and receive help if they need it.

Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I like to take peoples feelings into consideration and how they are affected by situations in there lives. I also like how you were aware how kids and teens are affected by their parents divorce.

I’m not a kid who has divorced parents but I have several friends who have divorced parents. Most of them feel like it’s their fault or they did something wrong to make it happen. Do you think they’ll ever stop thinking this way, or will it be a continuous cycle? I know in some cases parents have said something to make their kids think was their fault but I don’t think this is true in all cases. I’d love to hear more about your opinion on the subject.

Dear Lily V,

I am intrigued by your post, “How does divorce affect children?” because all the things you mentioned are very much true. As I am studying things related to the development of students, I can confirm that depending on their ages the children will have different responses to certain situations.

One sentence you wrote that stood out for me is: “Parents can peacefully co-parent, maintain healthy relationships with the children, and get the children professional help if they need it. “. I think this is interesting because I believe that there are certain circumstances where this would not be a realistic possibility. If anything, sometimes not having the parents in contact with one another would be the best option because in most cases there will always be bitter feelings between them. There may even be bitter feelings towards the kids. Although I guess that is ultimately up to the parents and what they’re willing to do for the sake of their own children.

Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I do enjoy topics related to family dynamics. I really want to work within that area and understand how someone like me can grow to be an important figure to fix broken families. I also appreciated that you mainly stated facts, there was clearly no bias within your writing so I will stay aware until next time.
