How children adjust

How a child adjusts to the situation depends on the following:

  • The level and intensity of conflict
  • Loss of contact with a parent, brother, sister, other close family member or friends
  • The level of support they get from their parents
  • Their parents’ ability to adjust
  • Changes in their household’s finances
  • The speed and amount of change – new partners, where they live, changing schools, access to friends
  • Their personality, age, gender and stage of development.
