Divorces and Conflicts Effects on Children
In recent days, children are getting much more mature than their adult counterpart. They may cause a lot of mischief, but unlike adults, they avoid conflict. The number of divorces happening each year are steadily increasing, these also increases the number of child abuse reports each year. Divorces usually happen because of conflicts between the two spouses. While two argue their differences, the children sit in the corner and look confused and scared. If the parents ever thought about their children, they would sacrifice their own happiness and live together for their children. If they think that their private life is more important than their children’s life, then they should have not have married at all. Marriage is a big responsibility, they should have tried living together for at least four months and then marry and have kids, if their happy. The maximum period a people should live together without marriage should be one year. Even if you’re an atheist, JW.org has many magazines for a happy family life.
Effect's Towards Children
A child gets very confused and scared during a conflict, but they still try their best to solve the conflict. Whether it’s a conflict between families or conflict between parents. Even yesterday, there was a fight between two family heads in the streets. The children of both families were pushing their fathers away from each other. I still remember the look of confusion that boy had. Conflicts between parents on the other hand causes more confusion than fear as they don’t know what action to take. At moment the parents divorce, the child will fall into bitter despair, especially if he/she had a happy family life. They try their best to hide their sorrow, but the more they try to hide, the more they become mentally disrupted. Simply, they would be emotionally scarred for life. It may sound simple, but in reality, it’s painful.
Cause of Conflict
I think that the reason why any kind of conflict would happen is because of TV or dramas to be specific. Drama in general won’t cause conflicts, but make conflicts fiercer. From my experience, my mom’s speech style was different before she started watching dramas. She drastically became over dramatic. This is why children are more humble than adults, they watch cartoons. Most TV shows I think rots the brain. If you have any other theories, please comment below.
