Sustaining Parent-Young Child Relationships during and after Separation and Divorce. Or Not
Pruett, Kyle; Pruett, Marsha Kline
Zero to Three (J), v32 n5 p33-39 May 2012
That separation and divorce frequently burden the young child emotionally and developmentally has moved from scientific to common knowledge over the past two decades. Recent cultural changes also moderate or intensify such stress and strain on the parent-child relationship: a divorce rate hovering at about 40% of all marriages, a third of all births occurring outside of marriage, and a steady increase in the involvement of fathers in the lives of their young children. This discussion focuses on the clinical implications of such changes for the vital relationships that comprise the nurturing domain in this stressful transition in family life.
