All parents will argue or have disagreements whether they live together, are separated, or divorced. When these arguments become more frequent, intense and are left unresolved it can be a difficult time for everyone. For children it can be upsetting when their parents argue; they may feel that they are the ones responsible, or they get caught in the middle. Parents may not set out to expose their children to this conflict and may be unaware of the serious negative impact this destructive communication is having on their child’s wellbeing.

Parental conflict is below the threshold of domestic abuse.

Reducing Parental Conflict is everyone’s business!
