Divorce has always been present in American society, but it has become more common in the last 50 years. The highest divorce rates ever recorded were in the 1970's and early 1980's. Since then, the divorce rate has actually decreased a little, but it still remains high. Divorce is emotionally draining for everyone involved, leading many to seek divorce counseling services. This is especially true for children, who generally don’t have any say over what is happening around them and to them. The loss of control, the harm to their self-esteem, and the loss of security can provoke a wide range of emotions, from sadness to anger, from depression to mania.
