The article discusses the impact of the increasing divorce rate in China on the prevalence of single-parent families and its influence on the development of children. Children from single-parent families often face challenges due to the incomplete family structure, leading to external behavior problems during adolescence. The article aims to provide a comprehensive review of previous research and examine the implications of single-parent families on adolescent external behavior. It explores the reasons behind behavior problems in these children, including family dynamics, economic circumstances, and societal influences. These factors include the absence of companionship and conflicts between parents at the family level, prejudice against single-parent families and negative social norms at the societal level, and economic constraints leading to materialistic desires. To address these issues and their underlying causes, the article suggests several solutions. For example, social institutions should enhance their supervision of minors, combat prejudice against children from single-parent families, and provide financial support to alleviate economic challenges. Efforts should also be made to improve educational resources. In conclusion, the article aims to enhance the external behavior and overall development of adolescents from single-parent families. By addressing the root causes of behavior problems and implementing practical solutions, it is expected that the well-being and positive outcomes of children from single-parent households can be significantly improved. Future research requires a comprehensive exploration of this topic.
