Study claims it's good for kids to watch their parents argue

A recent study from the Washington State University has found that when parents argue and settle their differences in front of their kids it has huge benefits for their development.

The research suggests that the 'not in front of the children' approach can actually cause confusion for the kids.

Kids are "good at picking up emotion cues" they add, so being open with tensions helps the kids better process what is going on.

“That helps kids learn to regulate their own emotions and solve problems. It’s best to let them know you feel angry.” the study said.

“If they feel something negative has happened, and parents are acting normal, that sends conflicting messages. Let them see the whole trajectory.

Do you tend to argue in front of your kids or take it somewhere private?
