Why do children for divorced homes have so many issues?
Has anyone else noticed that children of divorced homes have a lot more serious issues than children from non-divorced homes? Some issues I've noticed are.....
-a strong sense of entitlement ("me, me me....")
-behavioral issues (mood swings, excessive lying, manipulative, greedy, lack of concern for others and in some cases anti-social traits)
and when they get older........
-Substance abuse issues (alcohol, marijuana, pills, street drugs)
-Increased criminal behavior
-Lack of motivation as adults (they often live with their parents well beyond the appropriate years or have jobs that do not pay enough to pay their bills)
I feel the reason behind this is .....
- Their parents coddling and indulging them because of divorce guilt.
-An example was set by their parents that relationships and people are replacable. They do not value people nor relationships.
-Often one or more of their biological parents is very selfish or even narcissistic (emotionally disconnected, unstable, a "me,me,me" person)
