CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
Background of the study
Marriage according to Oxford
Learner’s Dictionary is a legal relationship between a man and a woman.  A successful marriage that bring about
children is what many people are praying to have in society today.
However, the issue of divorce is now
a worldwide phenomenon and it always have adverse effects on general well being
of any child that falls victim under this situation. Marriage is supposed to
bring harmony between husband, wife and children. According to Holy Bible in
Genesis chapter 2 vs 24 says, “a man shall leave his fathers house and leave to
a woman and they shall no longer be two but one”. When there is separation
between the man and the woman it is called divorce. Children who find
themselves in such situation often lack parental love, care and attention which
are very important factors needed for the children up bringing. In Nigeria, as in
most of other countries, of the world a good number of children are brought up
by a single parent. Divorce occurs when one of the couples found the other
incompatible to live with, that is become bored of managing or persevere under
hardship and decides to leave home for other either on mutual agreement or
through fighting, or runs away from home without the partner knowing his where
about.
Therefore, this constitutes long time
deprivation to the child whose total personality development should be supported
by both parents. The effects of these separation has a socio –economic
implications on the child and society at large. Whatever may be the cause of
the divorce it is the child who often pay the price. Many times the child in
this problem will feel lonely and loss of self confidence when faced with the slightest
difficult in life. Also children living with a single parent household have to
content with negative stereotype incessant hatful remarks made by insensitive
adults. Also divorce brings about misname in children, juvenile deliguency, bullying,
cheating, alcoholism, sex abuse, child abuse, smoking and many other deviant
behaviour become the other of the day.
Accordingly, family has effects and
influences on the social placement of the offspring in the society since there
is usually a tendency for most societies to link people with the affinity ties
to their nuclear family. The implication of this is that whatever one becomes
in life has a positive correction with one’s family socio – economic status in
society.
According to Robert Blested (1964) of
all groups that affect the lives of individual in society, none touches the
individual so intimately as dies the family from the moment of birth to the
moment of death.
Therefore, the type of child rearing
practice employed by parents will have an impact on the entire life of the
child in general and particular on his or her academic performances. In homes
where parents live together the kind of relationship between the mother and the
father also affect the academic performances of the child which could be
positive or negative. Wiseman (1973), argues that it is the parents attitudes
that rather affects the level of the children’s cognitive achievement.
Also the level of educational
achievement of parents, the kind intellectual environment, the home provides,
the socio – economic status of the parents the types of family the child comes
from whether divorce or not, the cardinal position of the child are variables
that affects or influence the emotional, cognitive and psychomotor development
of the child which also affects academic performances with the view to offer
solution to them.
