Teenage boys more likely to struggle with parental separation, study finds


Adele Horin:: One of Adele's more balanced articles.

"About 63 per cent of the young people lived mostly or only with their mother, 20 per cent with their father, and 17 per cent in shared care, and on the whole were happy with the amount of time spent with the other parent."

"For adolescents with equal care time, the parent-child relationship often stayed warm, secure and trusting after the separation. But for those who lived mainly in one household, their relationship with the other parent was sometimes less assured."
