This artists creates an excellent portrayal of divorce and depicts the child as a puppet!
Note that each parent has a string to control the child’s mind, and body parts. What seems to stand out the most is the demeanor of the child. He seems lost, expressionless and is slumped over. This may be interpreted as no ego, no personality, no positive sense of self. Which is understandable-if you are controlled by the two people you are to trust the most.
These parents do not seem to be interested in the wants, needs or desires of the child. In fact, could one be so presumptuous to think that the parents are more concerned about the child they can control and manipulate than THE CHILD! This picture is very revealing of the impact of parental conflict in divorce on the child!
Divorce is between the parents and ABOUT THE CHILD!!!!!
LOVE WINS!!! LOVE WINS!!! LOVE WINS!!! LOVE WINS!!! LOVE WINS!!!
