Divorce affects children in many different ways. Some kids act out, some withdraw, and others put up a brave front – acting as though nothing has changed in their worlds. Marta J. Papa – a divorce lawyer and mediator based in St. Louis, Missouri – discusses the latest research on the impact of divorce on children, especially when there is conflict involved. She also explains the steps parents can take to help their children move from surviving to thriving after divorce.
