How not to fight in front of your child!

Arguments between parents have an impact on children for a long time so it's advisable to keep the arguments limited to your room.

Fighting in front of your kids has a very negative impact on their growing years. So whenever a situation arises where you think that things might get heated, it is better to walk away from that place or tell your spouse “we will talk about this later”. You can talk about your issues separately and vent everything out because keeping things to yourself will affect your mental health.

  • The first step is just walk out of that situation. 
  • The second step is to wait till you are not around your children or you both are alone.
  • The third step is to reflect whether it is worth fighting on that particular point or not. If you can, just let it go with the passage of time.


If your argument is related to your child’s upbringing or academics or just a difference of opinion between you and your spouse regarding your child, talk this through in a calmer but firmer tone. Not everything needs to be shouted and sorted. This will also help children understand that things can be sorted out without shouting on each other.


  • If you and your spouse cannot sort things out without shouting on each other, it is better to pen down your opinions. Then you can exchange your written points with your spouse. This way there will be more understanding and less shouting.
  • After you have listened to or read your spouse’s side of opinions, you can discuss the solutions. Again, if you think that things will not be smooth during verbal discussion, then pen down your views and then discuss with each other.
