Does Divorce Damage Infants and Toddlers?

There are many who choose to stay with a partner longer than they normally would due to children being involved. Many have questioned exactly what effect divorce has on children. When it comes to infants and toddlers, a nasty divorce can seriously affect their development. The environment can be less nurturing and trusting, which has an effect on how they view the world. Long-term stress in their home environment can also cause significant psychological and medical illnesses, which can cause the brain or nervous system to under-develop. This translates into reduced social readiness later in life.

Key Takeaways:

  • Parents going through a divorce frequently forget to differentiate between their own needs and those of their children.
  • As the instability and potential stress of the divorce process also makes it more difficult for children to develop emotionally with both confidence and competence, divorce can also create long-term medical and psychological consequences.
  • To respond to the impact of divorce, parents can facilitate disruption by creating schedules in which their children can spend quality time with both parents.

What Sex Therapists Tell People Whose Partners Don’t Want Sex

Tactics for individuals for people whose partners aren’t interested in sex. Ranging from seduction to honest conversation, all seven tactics are supplied by a sex therapist. The article further talks about the lonely, and perhaps surprisingly, common occurrence of this problem within modern relationships. The article is accompanied by a video.

Key Takeaways:

  • Being in a relationship with someone who’s disinterested in sex can feel incredibly lonely. A discrepancy in desire is more common than most people realize, though.
  • Without asking, there’s no way of knowing why your spouse is disinterested in sex. Maybe they’re just exhausted and too stressed out by the day’s end to initiate sex.
  • The mismatch often creates a cycle where the spouse with the higher sex drive complains, compares or criticizes their partner and the partner ends up having sex out of obligation, she explained.
