Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Recent research has confirmed that divorce contributes to a major crisis in the lives of most children, with stress engendered by that crisis often entering into the academic learning of school-age children. Between 1960 and 1975, the number of one-person households doubled. Jenkins (1976) reported 9,000,000 children under the age of eighteen live in single-parented families. The United States Bureau of Census reported, "more than 18% of the nation's school age children live with a lone parent" (1982, p. 536) and projected that 48% of all children born in 1980 will live a considerable part of their life with a single parent before they reach the age of eighteen.
