It is true that, the family is the basic unit of socialization and source of one’s personality that affects a child’s development in a negative or positive way, based on the structure or pattern of the family concerned. When parents are living together with their children, positive impacts result in the physical growth and mental development of all family members, particularly the children.

Therefore the presence of both parents, father and mother, plays a significant role in child’s development, physically as well as mentally However there are few documented data that show in detail, the magnitude of this problem. According to national population census (2012: BDSEP report, 2014) revealed that, in Tanzania widowed comprises 3.1%, divorced 2.9%, separated 0.9% and never married people 35.5% of people above 15 years by age.

Family structure is one of the determinant factors on children’s performance in school. Broken families in any way, affects the development of a child’s well being, that include all spheres of life (Jeynes, 2012). Further studies conducted by Brown, Manning and Stykes, (2014) pointed out that, family complexity is a reality for many of today’s children and its prevalence depends on family structure .There has been a dramatic increase in family separation and divorce cases in Region. Census data indicate that, incidences of divorce in Region are rated second nationally, with about 44,395 divorce cases and 13, 585 separations.
