Welcome to The Grown Up Child!

Welcome to one of the only blogs about divorce issues, written by an adult child of divorce specifically for other adult children of divorce. I hope you enjoy your time here. It certainly has been quite a journey for me in creating this website.

You might be wondering, why? What’s the point? Why don’t you just get over it?

And I’ll be first one to say, I don’t know. But what I do know is that my parents separation and divorce over thirty years ago has shaped my life in ways I’m still coming to grips with. It continues to shape me today. And I don’t think I’m alone.

There are no definite numbers, but the staggering predictions are that over one quarter of today’s adults are children of divorce. A quarter of adults who have been wounded and left with scars we are only beginning to understand. And divorce isn’t going anywhere. It is predicted that right now, there are more children living in broken homes than in tact ones.

As with most good children of divorce, I’ve always kept my scars well hidden. Never wanting to appear to my parents or anyone else as damaged goods. But in the last year I could no longer deny the hurt. And so, I decided to write. I wrote and I wrote and you can find it all here.

So without any further delay, I’ll give you the grand tour:

- Here is my blog. Like any other, it’s where all my articles are published.
