The impact of divorce

Posted at 11:58 AM on August 26, 2009 by Julia Schrenkler

Today on MPR's Midday we'll hear the new documentary, Divorced Kid:

America's divorce rate soared in the 1970s. Thirty years later, in a documentary by producer Sasha Aslanian, kids who grew up in the divorce revolution look back on that experience and describe how it shaped them as adults.

Can there be a good divorce? What is best for the kids? How has society changed since the "divorce boom" of the late 1970s? Explore the documentary, share your experience, and read personal stories from others.
