The aim of this study is to explore the problems in group behavior of children with divorced parents based on their age, gender and location. This qualitative study is concentrated on analysing the problems in group behavior of children with divorced parents, aged from 6 to 18 yeard old. The identification of these group behavior problems was conducted using the SDQ questionnaire (Goodman, 1997). The data used in the study were assembled by the reporting of 400 children with divorced parents during the scholastic year 2011-2012 in primary, middle and secondary public schools in the district of Elbasan. The statistical processing of the data was carried out using the SPSS 20 program and alpha of Cronbah is .78. The results of this study pointed out that the main behavioral problems children display in a group are: they prefer to stay alone, they do not have friends, they do not wish to play with their peers. This study also shows that there is a link between the behavior of children in a group and parental divorce. At the end of this paper, several recommendations regarding the improvement of the behavior of children with divorced parents in a group environment are given to the parents, teachers and guardians of these children.
