Cox says, "I appreciate David more now than I ever did. I mean ... it's hard. I don't recommend divorce in general, but, you know, he is my best friend and we've both grown and changed."
Robert Hughes Jr., Ph.D. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign reports on divorce statistics. “Children of divorced parents are somewhat worse off than children who have lived in intact families. These children have more difficulty in school, more behavior problems, more negative self-concepts, more problems with peers, and more trouble getting along with their parents.”
The doctor goes on to say, “Generally how children fare in families is due in part to the mental health of the parents, this is likely to be true for children in divorced families as well.” “Conflict is frequently part of families and may be especially common in families that have undergone divorce. The degree to which children are exposed to conflict may have substantial effects on children's well-being.”
This love shared between Courtney and David will be great for their daughter Coco who will not have to live with parents who are vindictive or very angry with each other. There will be no name calling or faulting the other parent in anyway. She will not see the fiasco that Halle Berry and other celebrities have gone through. Coco may very well grow up to be a happy self-confident young woman.
