Parenting Styles and Divorce

Another interesting post I found on the Georgia Family Law Blog. This time on how parenting style affect a child's reaction to divorce. While the study focuses on impulsive children, it may give parents something to think about.

I know from my own experience as a product of a divorce (from long before divorce was common), that adjustments can be hard on the children. Looking back at what I see in my practice and what I remember of my parents, it helps if the parents put the children first, have more maturity than rancor, and have huge amounts of patience.
