National Longitudinal Survey of Youth data on 1,640 children aged 6-14 indicate that children's anxiety and depression/withdrawal were increased by prior parental marital conflict or disruption. Children remaining in high-conflict environments generally exhibited lower levels of well-being than children with high-conflict experience whose parents divorced or separated.
