"Daughters of divorce are at higher risk of getting divorced than sons of divorce. Researchers have found that positive relationships between adult offspring of divorce (AOD) and their parents buffer AOD from some long-term effects of parental divorce. This study explored the relationships among several mother-daughter relationship variables, and grown daughters' approaches toward (attitudes toward and exploration strategies of) marriage in the post-divorce family. Correlational analyses were used to assess significant relationships among the independent variables (mother-daughter connection, mother-daughter psychological separation, and mother-to-daughter disclosure) and the dependent variables (daughters' attitudes toward marriage and use of exploration strategies in the realm of marriage). Multiple regression analyses were used to determine which of the predictor variables best predicted the dependent variables. One-way ANOVAs were used to determine whether any of the variables differed according to race, mother's level of educational attainment, or the number of times the mother had divorced and remarried. Psychological separation and mother-to-daughter disclosures contributed more than anything else to daughters' use of exploration strategies in the realm of marriage, in the opposite direction from that expected. The less psychological separation there was between mothers and daughters, and the more depth in which mothers disclosed to daughters about divorce related topics, the more daughters reported using various exploration strategies in the realm of marriage. However, none of the relationships were clinically significant. None of the variables were predictive of daughters' attitudes about marriage. Analyses also revealed that various elements of mother-daughter psychological separation correlated differently with mother-daughter connection. None of the variables differed according to ethnicity or the number of maternal marital transitions. More educated mothers tended to offer their daughters more support. The findings from the current study underscore the importance of studying risk and resiliency factors for daughters in the post-divorce family and process variables like exploration strategies in the realm of marriage, in addition to marital outcome variables. These findings also add to a small body of research on ethnic similarities among adult offspring of divorce."--Abstract from author supplied metadata.

Divorce is at once a widespread reality and a painful decision, so it is no surprise that this landmark study of its long-term effects should both spark debate and find a large audience. In this compelling, thought-provoking book, Judith Wallerstein explains that, while children do learn to cope with divorce, it in fact takes its greatest toll in adulthood, when the sons and daughters of divorced parents embark on romantic relationships of their own. Wallerstein sensitively illustrates how children of divorce often feel that their relationships are doomed, seek to avoid conflict, and fear commitment. Failure in their loving relationships often seems to them preordained, even when things are going smoothly. As Wallerstein checks in on the adults she first encountered as youngsters more than twenty-five years ago, she finds that their experiences mesh with those of the millions of other children of divorce, who will find themselves on every page. With more than 100,000 copies in print, The Unexpected Legacy of Divorce spent three weeks on the New York Times, San Francisco Chronicle, and Denver Post bestseller lists. The book was also featured on two episodes of Oprah as well as on the front cover of Time and the New York Times Book Review.

Teenage Daughters as a Cause of Divorce

Teenage Daughters as a Cause of Divorce

This paper investigates whether there is an association between child gender and parent divorce: that is, do parents of girls divorce more often than parents of boys? It draws on administrative data from the Netherlands, with comparisons to studies from the United States. The study finds there is indeed a link between a child's gender and the divorce risks faced by the parents: Dutch families with daughters are more likely to divorce than families with sons during the teenage years. No association is apparent up to the age of 12 and after the age of 19. This finding cannot be explained by a preference by Dutch parents for sons or perceived higher financial costs of daughters. Instead, this study suggests that this increased risk can be attributed to relationship strains between parents and their teenage daughters, with a survey showing that parents with teenage daughters are more likely to disagree about the way their child should be raised and report lower satisfaction with their life and the quality of family relationships compared to parents with teenage sons. However, differences are observed for fathers who grew up with sisters.

Bird Nesting Extreme Co Parenting After Divorce

Bird Nesting  Extreme Co Parenting After Divorce

When divorcing, most parents will be concerned over how best to raise their children after separation of the family unit. Co-parenting, where both parents remain actively involved in raising their kids is becoming more commonplace as parents recognise the need to put aside their relationship differences in favour of raising the kids most effectively. For those who are committed to doing the very best to raise their kids, and ensure that their needs are put to the fore, there is an even more child-centric model of post-divorce family life; bird-nest co-parenting. In this model, the kids from the separated family remain in a single home and the divorced parents come and go around them, rather than the more conventional model where the kids move back and forth between homes and parents. The model is unusual, innovative and offers a unique means of providing continuity in the kids' upbringing. It also requires extensive compromise, planning and consistency in execution both by the parents and also the children..This book distils the knowledge and experience gained in the raising my two daughters following divorce, from the ages of 3 and 7, to 14 and 18, first via equal co-parenting and for the last two years using bird-nesting. My ex-wife and I determined in 2005 that our relationship with each other was over, but we were both committed to remaining actively involved in the raising of our daughters for the duration of both their childhood. Co-parenting, and later nesting, have allowed us both to preserve an active role as parents to our daughters, sharing equally in the highs and inevitable lows of raising kids. This model of post-divorce parenting and life has also helped us both to recover from divorce and build happy and fulfilled lives individually. More importantly, we've jointly raised two contented, loving, well-adjusted and accomplished daughters who have a close bond with each of us and with each other.This book introduces the concept of bird-nesting (also known as birds-nest parenting, bird-nest co-parenting or just nesting) and describes the core-principles of how it is intended to work. It provides a personal account of how our arrangement emerged (full-credit goes to my ex-wife for first suggesting it). It describes the challenges and pitfalls we've encountered and overcome along the way. It also shares the many beneficial experiences that co-parenting and then nesting have brought about in all our lives. On hearing of the concept, many will voice scepticism, and express concerns about how nesting could possibly work, ranging from how the financial aspects stack up, the challenges that it presents for potentially blurring the boundaries between pre and post-divorce life, and also in relation to the inevitably closer visibility afforded into the life of your ex (and for them in relation to your life). This book tackles each of these objections in turn and assists the reader in understanding how they can be managed, minimised and dealt with to allow you all to benefit from employing the arrangement. If you are curious as to how to give your kids the best life possible after the separation of their family unit, if you are open to new and innovative ways of living, or if you are simply curious to understand how such an arrangement can be made to work, I hope you will find this book interesting and informative. I'm passionate about sharing my experiences and details of the challenges that I have overcome in the hope that it may help others who are tackling similar situations in their lives. I'm proud of my kids as all parents are, but I'm also proud of the way that we've been able to give our kids a childhood that is by no means second-best, but rather one that is complete and loving. I hope that this book will find others who have a similar goal for the raising of their kids post-divorce and who are interested to learn more about bird-nesting, an extreme form of co-parenting.
