Can divorce be a positive thing for the children involved?
Absolutely depending on the situation. If the adults are constantly fighting whether it be physically or verbally it creates a toxic atmosphere for children to have to cope with. Children would rather be from a broken home than live in one.
Another scenario is if both of the adults truly love the children but realize they can't be happy as a couple they may strive to work as a team with regard to co-parenting. It is not unheard of for some exes to be better friends than spouses.
A divorce is nothing more than one or both people reaching the conclusion that their marriage is a mistake. What effects the child more than anything else is how the adults handle the divorce as well as how they treat one another. Kids are more resilient than we give them credit for being. - A former child of divorce :-)
Yes, a divorce can result in positivity for the children involved :-)
One element has to be the foundation in order for the children to thrive, which is; the parents divorcing have to acknowledge that they are ending their marriage and not being mommy and daddy to their children :-)
Divorce really shouldn't be a positive thing for anyone but it can be necessary if the marriage causes pain to the children. If drugs, alcohol, violence are involved and the only way to keep the children safe is to dissolve the marriage, then of course divorce is a positive solution for the children. I also wanted to add that if the parents do not love each other, the children will sense it. And no child should grow up in a household where no love exists between parents. It only breeds resentment and teaches the child how not to love and give the wrong connotations of marriage and warrants unhealthy relationships.
