Mad Men: Sally Draper Wants Don to Come Home

Mad Men: Does Divorce Take a Bigger Toll on the Children?

Divorce continues to divide the Draper family in last night's episode of Mad Men, but both parents have moved on. Don distracts himself with work and a steady flow of women while Betty looks to Henry for support. Despite the adults' ability to move on, it's much more difficult for their kids. In a sweet letter to her father (on her brothers' behalf), Sally tells Don what she wants most for Christmas is to have him home. Do you think divorce affects children more than their parents?

I think its harder on children because the younger they are, the less they understand. They don't understand why they suddenly can't see one parent, why they are moving, why they are in court every 5 seconds, and most importantly, why their parents can't just say they are sorry and have things go back to the way they were.

I think it does, break-ups are tough but you get over it eventually and find a new partner (and most cases anyway) but having divorced parents will be part of who you are for the rest of your life. My parents divorced when I was 5. It was for the better but in the end it was harder on my brother and me because we didn't chose for this to happen. We had no say in the matter. Our parents made the decision because it was better for them.

I voted no, it's equally hard on everyone involved, but really it's all about keeping the right attitude and letting go of any hurt feelings. Children are resilient, grown-ups are more stuck in their ways and I think have a harder time moving past it.
