Children who come from broken homes or who have divorced parents often grow into adults with no family values and in turn, have broken homes of their own.

Single parent and divorced, shared-custody families have become more common place in American society over the past fifty years. During the 1940s and 1950s, “85% of children lived in two-parent families, 70% lived in an intact (biological or adoptive) two-parent family, and the remaining 15% lived in two-parent stepfamilies….. however, since the 1970s, there has been a large increase in the proportion of children living with never-married mothers (from 1.1% in 1970 to 6.7% in 1988) or divorced mothers (from 3.5% in 1970 to 7.8% in 1988)” (Shiono and Quinn par. 2). Since there has been an increase in divorced and never-married mothers taking care of families, there have been countless studies done on how different family structures affect the children involved and the family unit as a whole. I believe that the two biological parent family structure is the best for children and society because it provides stability, allows for stable financial income, and also prevents role strain for the parents.

How is a two parent family different from a broken family? Is there an age group in children that handles divorce better than others? Can having siblings make the moments of distress any easier? Finally, my research question would be, what are the factors that contribute to children that are affected by divorce? Is there a scientific evidence behind these factors?

A.C.O.D. is a good movie Good movie I have enjoyed the film.
