The relationships built through immediate family are some of the deepest and most meaningful relationships we will ever have. From sharing your life with someone who you feel makes every day better to watching children grow from helpless babies to talking, walking, laughing and playing parts of you. A family grows tight bonds that allow us to fell wanted, feel loved, and feel a part of something that is greater than we are alone.
Unfortunately, people sometimes grow apart creating conflict in the home. If children are also a part of the family they can also be affected by the conflict and fighting that they hear and see from their parents. As life becomes busier and people become more individualistic and independent our ideals of family and the ideal partner change leaving a divide between those who were once in love, and potentially leaving the children in the middle. Many times this conflict can lead to continual arguing, hurt feelings, and confused children feeling like they are losing one of their parents, many times blaming themselves for their parents split.
Family conflict leads to unstable relationships leaving children with a lasting impression of unhealthy relationships. Many children from divorced homes will themselves divorce or find difficulty committing to others.
