In brief: Hopeful...

Most can emerge as competent, fairly happy adults if the divorced parents can avoid continued open warfare involving the child.
Recommended book: dr phil's "family first: your step-by-step plan for creating a phenomenal family ." if healthy post-divorce parenting is challenging, please get help for the kids! parents should also get help, jointly or separately, to avoid compromising kids wellness.
