My Parents Tore My World Apart

             What do you usually see when you are around children? They are always happy and lively, right? It is what children intended for, to let us know that there are a lot of things to be happy and when times are not right just deal with it and for a span of time you can gain the same feeling of happiness again. But in that innocent mind of a child and their parents got divorce there might be different emotion children will deal with.

            It has a rough statistical estimate of married couples who have children and got divorce. What do they think of their relationship, only their emotions are important in it? They oversee the children that they have, if they say that it is also for the good of their children that their parents are not quarrelling anymore for some good reason which is the divorce, and then they are totally wrong! Children got their confidence from their home and who you think are the people in their own houses, their parents. Youngsters usually boast to their playmates that they got the best mom and dad because of things that they got from them. So when they realize that their parents are no longer living in the same house anymore they might feel unexplainable bad feelings because their world revolves only around their parents, even though some parents will say that they still get same attention from the both it is still not the same attention they got when their parents are in the same house. When their parents’ divorce they have to deal with residing two different houses, like this week they have to stay with their father then next week will be to their mother.

            You cannot imagine how bitter to a child that they are seeing their parents are truly going to separate forever as husband and wife. They might think different reasons and worst is when they think that they are the reason why their parents will separate. There are three possible ways why divorce is bad to children first is the loss of every day. When parents think that living the “old house” that they used to live as one whole family would be great for a brand new start after the divorce, but it might be the opposite feelings for a child. When a child has many friends in their neighbours, he will surely loss them especially when they are going to live far from their old home. Second way of child’s painful feeling is the loss of their parents the way they used to have. For the parents they will assure their child that they will still be the same parents who loved and cared for them, but it is not possible! After the divorce their parents usually date someone and then remarried and have children of their own. So the child will compete for the affection of their mom or dad from their new sibling and to their step- parent who is a complete stranger to them. Lastly is the loss of materials or financially unstable for the commoners. After the divorce there is no sharing of money for their mom and dad so whatever a child want it is not there instantly. For the child he might think that what he wants was not given because he is not loved anymore which is not true, but the reason is there is really not enough money for the wants of the child.

            Child’s perspective and viewpoint in the divorce of his parents will never be the same to that of his parents.  If it is a difficult situation for them as spouse it is a lot bitter to their own child. To those parents who are divorcee it is not effective to tell your child that your divorce procedure in Singapore is also for their own sake because the truth is not, what is good to do is to just listen to what they say and don’t comment to it. Also do what you say not just mere promising the impossible things.
