This research is about self-disclosure of a child who is in early stages of adulthood with their parents who have been divorced. The focus of this research is limited to the scope of the DKI Jakarta area. In this study, the concept of interpersonal communication is used that focuses on self-disclosure and conflicts that occur in the family. The results of data processing encountered during the interview process will be studied using the theory of Relational Maintenance Behaviors proposed by Laura Stafford and Dan Canary. This study uses a phenomenological approach with an interpretive paradigm. The results of the data findings in this study indicate that the impact of divorce on children can make children become individuals who have problems with trust, and tend to be closed, especially to their parents. This impact can be minimized by maintaining communication. Parents need to play an active role so that communication can continue to be established by providing positive feedback to children. This will create a feeling of security, comfort and can restore the child's trust to their parents. That way, the child will begin to open up or do self-disclosure as an effort to increase the closeness between themselves and their parents. Self-disclosure as a process requires good cooperation among the people that involved in it. Doing self-disclosure can increase satisfaction in relationships, as well as an effort to maintain relationships that have been damaged.
