Keep your arguments behind closed doors
If ata all possible when parents argue, don’t do this in front of other family members. This will definately cause children to feel unsafe and insecure. They may even begin to blame themselves. Take your arguments in the bedroom or even go out for a walk alone to discuss the matter.
Try to avoid fighting over who’s right and who’s wrong in an argument. This is the wrong attitude for anybody to have. Children need to learn that there is no right or wrong in an argument because everyone is entitled to their own opinions and the way they feel.
