How a child copes depends on several things such as the quality of the relationship with their parent before the divorce, how intense and conflicted the divorce is and how well the parents focus on the needs of their children during and after the divorce takes place. Every child will react differently, but there are some behaviors that are typical and common in all divorces. Children often worry that they are being divorced as well as the spouse when a relationship ends.

This can further be compounded when a parent is late for a pick-up after school or during a visitation exchange. Children will often act out or say things to try and provoke a demonstration of protectiveness out of the parent. When one parent does a better job of reacting to abandonment issues, this can cause divided loyalties or pit one parent against the other.

This is prevalent in young children who will use it as a primary coping mechanism. It can manifest itself many ways, either verbally or through physical actions. Children may lash out at siblings, parents, friends, teachers or others as a way to offload complex emotions.
Hostility may be focused at the parent that the child perceives is responsible for the divorce. When hostility is bottled up it can lead to depression. Look for signs of social withdrawal, lethargy, problems eating and sleeping and a lack of interest in normal routines as signs of depression manifest themselves. Focus on reconciliation. Children do not want their world to disintegrate and will try to do things that force reconciliation on parents, making them interact in hopes this will lead to getting back together. The stronger the conflict, the stronger that this focus may be as a child tries to fix a problem that has become the center of their entire world.
Children will not only point fingers at their parents but may also subconsciously try to shoulder the blame for a divorce on themselves. Feelings of guilt may also accompany feelings of blame as children worry that their own behavior was the reason for a breakup. Divided loyalties. A child caught between two parents where parents open up a bit about the divorce to the child may either be an unwitting pawn in a divorce or purposely used by a parent to inflict emotional damage on the other spouse. The amount of conflict inside a child experiencing divided loyalties can be intense and cause significant long-term issues.
Tests of loyalty. To seek reassurance, a child may try to test the loyalty of parents to them and to each other, trying to force interaction as a way of fighting the divorce. They may refuse to go with one parent, or talk to one parent on the phone, or offer up resistance until they get what they want. This could be a flashback of sorts to when they felt unity and love in the family instead of the current climate of conflict.
You can also expect more temper tantrums, crying and an uptick in general anti-social behavior. Children three to five years of age may resort to sucking a thumb, have lapses in toilet training, and suffer from a fear of abandonment. They may also experience anxiety at bedtime, unrestful sleeping patterns and also show more frequent aggression or temper tantrums as well. Children who are six to eight years old will suffer from bouts of crying and sobbing, sadness and feeling abandoned or rejected. They will struggle with loyalty conflicts, have reconciliation fantasies and could also have issues with impulse control or unorganized behavior.
Nine to year-olds may experience intense feelings of anger toward their parents, suffer from a fear of being lonely, and have manifestations of physical problems such as headaches or upset stomachs. They may also feel ashamed at what is happening to their family and a few may even start to experiment with drugs or alcohol as a way to escape.

They may also have difficulty in school with a lack of concentration or complain of chronic fatigue, possibly turning to drugs and alcohol as a means to dull their perceived pain. This can include increased mental health problems, substance abuse and less success in their professional careers and romantic relationships.
