ACCREDITED SENIOR PSYCHOTHERAPIST/COUNSELLOR -Dr.Fawzy Masaoud-LONDON, ENGLAND

The studies in mental health
prove that the family breakdown cause serious mental health disorder to their
children nowadays.

The
breakdown of families now occurs more regularly, leaving children to cope with
the consequences of these changes in their family life. Sometimes parents
remain friendly after breakdowns, but they can be acrimonious, leading to
children feeling depressed, guilty, withdraw and alienated.

Children
will therefore require support to help them cope with the relationship
breakdown. The child may feel upset and
left out.

Parents
may wish to help children cope with the breakdown. However, sometimes parents may not recognise
that their children are grieving, focussing too much on their own needs.

Various
factors affect how children cope with the breakdown of families; these include

  • 1-How the child is treated.
  • 2-How adaptable the child is.
  • 3-Divorce makes children feel insecure.
    The reasons for the

divorce.

  • 4-The parents’ relationship before the divorce.
