Children of divorced parents -- Psychology;
Studies by Hetherington, Stanley-Hagen, and Anderson in 1989 (cited in Kurtz & Deverensky, 1993) indicated that approximately 45 percent of all children born in the United States since 1970 will experience an average of six childhood years in a single parent home as a consequence of divorce. Guttman (1993) reported that according to the U.S. Bureau of Census in 1989, this 45% figure accounts for 1 million children every year. Guttman (1993) stated that this figure represents a 400% increase in numbers of children affected in the United States since 1957 when F. I. Nye first began studying children from "broken" homes.
