s parents, we try not to row in front of our children.
Instinctively, we know they find it hard to cope when we’re at odds with one another, and they’re disturbed if our arguments become persistent or hostile. But there’s some important information that all parents need to be aware of.
Many local authorities separate adult and children’s services, making it very difficult to take a whole family approach.This is important for thinking about the best ways of supporting families and children to address these issues.Policy and services need to consider the couple relationship (together or apart) as well as the parent-child relationship - and it needs to address fathers as well mothers.his is an important issue that services aren’t really considering. How children perceive their parents’ level of conflict determines how they expect their parents to behave towards them - and this, in turn, can lead to psychological distress.What’s fascinating is that conflict between parents has more of an impact on the relationship between a father and his child than a mother and her child.
