The Effects of Divorce on Teens

Written by Mark Merrill

January 26, 2022

Divorce is never easy on anyone, but teens often channel their emotions into destructive behaviors. A recent survey from Pediatrics journal shows that teens of divorcing families are twice as likely to use drugs or alcohol. They are also more likely to act out through physical fighting, property damage, and stealing. Others may experience depression and anxiety. But the good news is that parental support can help alleviate some of these risks. Make sure you keep the lines of communication with your teen open. Agree with your spouse to put aside your differences in front of the children and work together to do what’s best for them. For more ways to help kids cope with divorce go to my blog at MarkMerrill.com.
