The effects of Divorce on Children and Education

The effects of Divorce on Children and Education | how divorce effect education | Scoop.it
Children exposed to divorce are twice as likely to repeat a grade and five times likelier to be expelled or suspended from school, according to the article
edward mattick's insight:

The most alarming thing i found was "Children exposed to divorce are twice as likely to repeat a grade and five times likelier to be expelled or suspended from school." This very bluntly states that if a child is from a divorced family they are more likely to repeat a grade. along with this they also show children who are from divorced family are more likely to get into trouble. i believe this stems from the parents not being around to discipline the children. when the children are not being disciplined they are running around getting into trouble and not having to suffer the consequences of their actions. this in turn cause the kids to think "they can get away with" anything they want. This also discusses how many times children from divorced family are misdiagnoses as having a learning disorder when in reality they are only suffering from the negative effects of their parents divorce. I do believe this source is reputable because the author is a marriage and family counselor with over 30 years of experience.

edward mattick's insight:

youtube

This video summarizes how the child an blame them self for their parents divorce and can then in turn blame them self for the divorce. They discuses how the child needs to insulated from the negative effects of the divorce. This shows that the parents need to help the child cope with the divorce just as much as they are coping with it. they also offer a class to teach the parent to show that it is important that the parent helps the student cope. another topic the video brings up is that the kid will not talk about their emotions. The kid will also feel hopeless. The kid will often act out these emotions. rather than talking about them. I am unsure on how reputable this source is. These is no author or director given.

This graph shows the different effects that divorce can have on a child. The two things jumped out at me the most when i was analyzing this graph. the first thing is that the first three bars are in essence the same thing. They all essentially say "my life would be different if my parents were together. When you add these three bars together it comes out to 189% so it pretty safe to assume that almost all of the people in the survey said they would be a different person if their parents were still together. The second major thing that jumped out at me was the fact that 48% of the people said that they worried about having their parents at an event together. This could cause them to worry about their own graduation. Since the students are worrying about their parents being at their graduation rather than being happy that they are graduating this can cause them to not want to graduate. I do think this is a reputable source since the author of the website "is a Professor of Psychology and Director of the Center for Children, Families, and the Law at the University of Virginia."
