Impacts from a parental divorce can go well into a child’s future

The reasons why it is so critical for parents to give proper regard and focus to their children’s rights and interests during a divorce are numerous. One such reason is that the effects a parental divorce can have on kids are not limited to the short term. Rather, a child can experience such impacts long after the actual divorce occurs, including into their adulthood.

A recent study points to the possibility that a childhood parental divorce could potentially impact the state of a child’s sleep health when they are an adult.

The study involved an analysis of data regarding over 1,000 individuals. These individuals ranged in age from 22 to 60. These individuals were asked to self-report whether they had experienced certain childhood events, including parental divorce. Also, an insomnia assessment was conducted regarding these individuals.

The study found that individuals that experienced certain childhood events, including parental divorce, had a higher insomnia likelihood. When it came to parental divorce, the study found that such a childhood event was associated with increased likelihood for mild adult insomnia.

Sleep problems are no small thing. They can have all kinds of significant health and quality-of-life implications. Thus, whether divorce could have long-term effects on a child’s sleep health is certainly not an inconsequential issue.

Along with the fact that divorce could have impacts on a child’s future; another thing it is important for divorcing parents to know is that they are not powerless to protect their children’s future when going through divorce proceedings. How parents act and what happens during the various stages of such proceedings can have some significant implications regarding what impacts the divorce is likely to have (or not have) for their kids. Divorce lawyers can give divorcing parents guidance on what steps they can take towards protecting their child’s future in child custody and other divorce proceedings.
