Poems about Divorce

Divorce affects more than just a couple. It affects their children too, and sometimes quite deeply. Even peaceful divorces can leave children and teenagers with emotional scars, like a sense of insecurity and abandonment. Teens especially need to feel love and guidance from both of their parents during their difficult adolescent years. Instead, they might begin to feel that their parents care only about their own happiness and don't really love them. These feelings are normal and difficult to work through. Teens dealing with the divorce of their parents should express their feelings and seek comfort from a trusted friend or family member.
