They show statistics that broken families affect much of the child’s emotional and spiritual being, that it greatly distresses the child’s education. The study was conducted on teenagers age 13-16. These ages are the most effective, cause at this age, a person discovers how to confront the problems, and he learns how to live with it. They also establish their own personality at this age, so the researcher took advantage of this factor, because by this, the researcher can see how much a person is affected by this king of problems, if there are other factors which counter the problems he/she faces.
