Psychobabble child of divorce

The Houston Chronicle did an article recently (which appears to no longer be available online) on John Bradshaw, a popular self-help guru who coined the term "inner child" and, according to the Chronicle, "brought talk of dysfunctional families into the mainstream."

Interestingly, Bradshaw, who is now 75 years old, was a teenage child of divorce.

Why am I not surprised that a child of divorce blossomed in the SELF-help industry?

It's important that you are aware of your divorce rights if you are going through a divorce or you are planning to get a divorce. Going through a divorce can be difficult and unsettling, but it's so important that you know your duties and rights so you can make sure you get the benefits you deserve. Be aware that each person has rights. First of all, it is important that you realize that each person in the relationship has divorce rights. You have rights and your spouse has rights as well. Once you realize this, the whole process will be a bit easier for you. So, remember that you each have rights and take the time to learn what these rights really are. This is not going to be a one way street for either of you. Here is a good link where you can get some information just visit the link How To Divorce.

There are different effects that a divorce will bring to a child. Although they will be more inclined to be helping themselves, sometimes they do turn out to have behavioral problems and relationship issues.
Parents should think of the consequences of having a divorce to their kids. Explaining the reasons properly and at the same time continue to love them despite the separation.
These children of divorce does not need to feel that they're alone. If parents would only think of guiding them and being there for them.
