Since MARRIAGE STORY covers a family in the throes of divorce, we wanted to discuss the impact of divorce on young children’s mental health.

According to a study discussed in @The Guardian, parental separation is more likely to harm the mental health of children if they are aged at least seven when the split occurs.

Minors aged between seven and 14 at the time of the split exhibit a 16% rise in emotional problems, such as anxiety and depressive symptoms, and an 8% increase in conduct disorders.

In contrast, children whose parents separate when they are between three and seven are not more likely to develop such problems either immediately or by the age of 14 than those still living with both parents.

Our panel of mental health experts are discussing this and more in our segment of psychology in the news that we call Being Human.
