Education and the Children of One-Parent Families: A Background Paper.
Riley, Barb
Current literature about children of one-parent families can provide educators with information on what effects living in a one-parent family have on a child's personality, behavior, and academic performance. Research indicates that at the elementary level children often fear abandonment, act aggressively, and display attention-seeking behaviors after their parents have separated. At the secondary level, such children often blame themselves, display anger or withdrawal, and have difficulty with heterosexual relationships. In some cases the experience leads to greater independence and personal strength. Discussion groups and peer counseling are often helpful counseling techniques for children in one-parent families.
