Parents who find themselves considering or approaching divorce often spend most of their time worrying about the effects of divorce on children in Arizona. Experts recognize the importance of these issues and questions and have been researching the impact of divorce on children for years.

In a study published in the September 2013 issue of Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, results indicated that children whose parents divorced when they were between the ages of 3 to 5 years old tend to have higher levels of insecurity regarding parental relationships in comparison to children whose parents divorced when the children were older.

Children who have a “secure” relationship with a parent are more likely to feel trust toward the parent. They tend to be more comfortable depending on the parent and have confidence that the parent will be available when the child needs them.
