Most parents crave the best for their children. But we are humans, too. We have ups and downs, we have bad moments and quarrels. That is pretty normal. There are times, however, when we become stuck in our egoistic adult bubbles, leaving the kids outside, forgetting about their feelings, and letting negative emotions take over the relationship with our partners. Home is where kids should feel safe, their cozy happy shelter. If tension escalates too much and too often, that could hurt the feeling of security and harmony our children need from us, their parents. This can hinder their development, shake their mental health, and interfere with their behavior.
Living in such a hostile environment, some children can start feeling constantly anxious, worried and hopeless. While in other children the effect can be expressed through violent outbursts and aggressiveness toward others.
A study also found that children from conflict-ridden households are more likely to be sick often. If they start experiencing a calmer environment, their health can significantly improve.
