Kids & Conflict: The Impact of Divorce or Separation on Children

Not all relationships work out. That’s not a surprise. What may be a surprise is just how that is impacting our kids. With divorce rates going up during the pandemic, it’s important we understand how any conflict with our partner, or former partner, is affecting our children.

We talked with Dr. Karey O’Hara from Arizona State University on the mental and physical health challenges kids face when their parents are divorced, separated or struggling in their relationships.

Thank you for joining me for the Positively Dad journey! My name is James Shaw and I'm a husband and father. I live in the Tampa Bay area with my wife, Terri and our young daughter, Naomi. The goal with Positively Dad for us to think, learn and grow. It's easy to get caught up in the day to day and miss opportunities to become amazing fathers. I trust that the conversations we have on Positively Dad will help you see that fatherhood is truly a journey and that we are better together than figuring it all out on our own.
