Beware the bomb drop
Reply to "Parents should argue..."
Its always difficult when the moment is there that the bomb drops and you need to vent your frustrations on your suppose to be better half without the children knowing that you're arguing. No, arguing in front of the children or within listening range should not happen.

Children should believe their household is stable and comfortable. It not only causes all those physical effects mentioned in your newsletter but it has mental effects too. Insecure children can do more harm to themselves and to others than any average happy child, leading to all those physical effects you mentioned.

We tend to forget our children are only children and that its our responsibility to nurture and take care of their well-being when you in this rage of anger and frustration.
