Noticing Change in Children for TEI Workers
Around one in four of today’s children will experience parental divorce/permanent separation before the age of 18 and one in twenty will experience the death of a parent. Each of these experiences can result in emotional and economic hardship for the family and a reduction in resources available to the child during their development. On average, those who experienced parental divorce or separation and those who experienced the death of a parent as a child had lower levels of school completion, employment participation and lower personal income as an adult than those who did not.
