The study used across sectional survey both quantitative and qualitative approach because it provided detailed knowledge about the impact of family structures on children’s psychological development. The findings in table above shows that majority of the respondents were female (5 8.0%), (42.0%) were male among 100% respondents. This implies that the highest percentage is represented by female who participated in the study in Kisenyi parish Kampala central division. Findings in table 4, Indicate that majority of the respondents (42.0%) were between the age bracket of 36-49 years, followed by (39.0%) with the age of20-35 years, (19.0%) were 50 and above years. This implies that there were adequate representation of the study population and data that was provided represented the views of age groups. From table 5, majority of the respondents (25.0%) were Primary level and (19.0%) were Secondary level, (8.0%) had attained Certificate (17.0%) had Diploma, (11.0%) had degrees, and only (20.0%) had attained Master’s degree. As the growing body of research evidence indicates, there is no single cause for the declining well-being of children in single parent families, but rather many. No single explanation accounts for the differences, and some scientific support exists for each of the five perspectives: economic hardship. loss of parental support and supervision, lack of community resources, parental conflict, and life stress and instability (Amato, 2003; McLanahan & Sandefur, in press). The study recommends Single parents to seek medical and professional help in case of depression and get organized or ask for help of a family member in doing so. x
