Spoiled Children of Divorce

Pros and Cons and Then and Now

Here is a link from an internet site called “Save the Marriage Now.” People are responding to a question asking for “Pros” and “Cons” of growing up in divorce.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again but it always amazes me how openly abusive the step-mothers are.  They are bullies.  There are the usual amounts of people who wished that their parents divorced chiming in.  I don’t have a clue what that compulsion is all about.  I suppose those types grew up in the awful divorce where the parents bicker all the time.  Those kids usually do really well in life materially but are malcontents because they have that constant tension inside.

Right now I’m stuck at Age 7 because that’s what I’m trying to learn about.  I was really happy when I was that age.  I had recurring dreams that I was magical butterfly and I would fly over the playground wearing a really crazy psychedelic costume and fix all my friends’ problems with my magic wand.  Ha!  I bet if my parents hadn’t divorced I would have been one of those stupid women who takes on 3 pissed off step-children later in life thinking I will fix their lives.

Anyhoo, I looked up my old High School on Wikipedia since my parents’ divorce took up my entire High School years.  Man, High School was a bad time.  The town where I grew up was probably the most ideal place to raise kids.  Almost everybody was genuinely nice and highly intelligent and very successful but not too rich.  Well, the real estate prices started to go up because everyone else wanted to live there and the parents all became rich really fast.  Probably more than half of the families broke up within a couple of years.  The parents became total sodomites. Haven’t got a clue what that means except that it wasn’t normal.  Three families who lived on the same street sold their houses and moved to Colorado together to get away from the obnoxious rich people.   The town has since sobered up and has become a very affluent place.

The wikipedia entry for my High School says that almost all of the kids going to the school don’t have divorced parents.  I guess that rich people have to stay together.  I mean, I know it’s not worth it to make sure the kids have a solid upbringing but when it comes to splitting up all that money … now that’s just hitting way too far below the belt.

Divorce can be extremely traumatic to families, especially children. My children’s picture book, Living With Mom, Spending Time With Dad takes us through a myriad of emotions that two children, Stephen and Alex, experience through this tumultuous period. Young Alex especially gives an extremely candid and honest account of the day-to-day trauma, the hostility and at times the many poignant memories that he has. Living with Mom, Spending Time with Dad also addresses the concerns and anguish of being torn between two parents. Throughout the story there is that underlying hope that everything will turn out alright and everyone will be back in their original comfort zone.
