Some children suffer because of parents separation. They turn to their friends for support. Sometimes children specially teenagers become rebellious and are angry with their parents because they feel that it is unfair. Why do they have to suffer for their parents problems. They confide to their friends and sometimes they get bad company and influence them to go the wrong way to show that they want to rebel against their parents.Why do children suffer the fault of parents?

It's unfortunate that children have to suffer at the fault of their parents, but I am a strong believer that a "broken home" may not be so bad - as long as the parents handle the situation in a mature matter. I was raised by parents who stayed together because of us kids... as soon as we were out of school, divorce was immediate. I absolutely cannot think of a WORSE thing for them to do! - Not only were we intelligent enough as kids to realize that our parents had a VERY unhealthy relationship, but as adults, we are now all struggling to keep ourselves from falling into unhealthy/abusive/neglectful relationships with the opposite gender. Furthermore, there was nothing worse than coming home from holiday breaks from college and not even having a 'home' to go to... I think if parents can't stick together and have a normal marriage, then call it quits right away and bring the kids up in a 'broken', but MATURE way!

This is one of the very sad part in the life of childrens whose parents have seprated. They suffer because of no reason and because of their parents fault. Their only fault remains is that they were born to these insane parents.

I can very well understand this situation. Since my childhood, I have seen my parents only fighting with each other. The moment they are together they start fighting. I feel very sad and depressed for both of them. But, I am not able to do anything. I want to see them happy. I love both of them. But then too I have to see them fighting every day. It is very painful to see them like that. I pray to god that they stop fighting. I have tried to do everything to stop their fights, but I could reach nowhere. It is really very depressing.

It is sad that children suffer because of their parents problems. My fiance and I are getting married in August, and we both feel that this is a once in a lifetime event. Our daughter is 12 months old, and we want our family to be the complete circle. I think that parents don't realize how their decsions, and mistakes effect their children, either they don't realize it or they don't care. I would hate to think though that they don't care. It is the fact oflife that some relationships just don't work out, and it is for the best when parents split. Even for the sake of the children. I mean fighting in front of a child, or the child hearing is just as hurtful as the parents splitting. I hope that more parents will realize what their children are going through, not just what they themselves are feeling.

Children should not suffer the fault of parents certainly,but parents are entitled to be happy.In case marriage only hurts each other at last and separation can solve this problem,so set them free.In my opinion,even if parents separate,they still love their children.

your statement is absolutely true. we cant help but believe that not all marriages are successful. there are couples who choose to separate because of individual differences and physical incapacity. now the one who most suffer for this separation are the kids. this is unavoidable and we cant say that this is the fault of the parents. i am pretty sure that couple who are having marital problems have taken into consideration the affects of separation to the children. i believe that problems arises when couple have not talked to the children and explained the reasons why they opted to separate. if parents will give their children an assurance that inspite of the break up they are still being loved then i guess there will be no problem at all.

I think that is because every human being are borned to be loved and to seek for being loved and the family is the mostly only place where one can be comforted with unconditional love. In these children they are somehow terrified or injured mentally they can not have loved from the family which is of basic of a human beings life. Is what I think. That is why they seek love and comfort outside the family which sometimes bad influences come in. In what I think.

Hi darlette, It is very sad that children have to suffer this way, and I agree with you that it is often the reason that so many have problems in life. I feel that there is something sadly lacking in a society where children's only choice seem to be a broken home, either because the parents have separated or are living together, but fighting all the time. Many people talk about the importance of marriage, but you have to wonder when nearly 50% of marriages end in divorce and another 25% stay together only for appearances sake. I don't claim to have the answer but feel that it plays a major factor in the crime rate. We need to find a better way. Blessings.
