Our expert says:
I don't think bad effects from divorce are anywhere near inevitable --- I haven't read the article you mention, so I don't know what it claims. It does not make it likely that a child will become a druggie, or become depressed. Other aspects of how parents behave towards children may influence those outcomes, but divorce in itself, not necessarily so. Your young child will sense your mood and emotions, but remember that at this age he has nothing to compare this with.
