Differences happen with almost every couple at some point. But sorting them out in a mature way, refusing to involve the kids and avoiding misbehaviour, name calling and violence in front of the child will teach the child to solve disagreements in a healthy way.

But this generally may not happen with each couple. They may resort to violent behaviours like shouting, throwing objects at each other, abusing, threatening and hitting. It’s a wrong notion that kids get used to it. They don’t!

Childhood in an anxious age and the crisis of modern parenting

Imagine for a moment that the future is going to be even more stressful than the present. Maybe we don’t need to imagine this. You probably believe it. According to a survey from the Pew Research Center last year, 60 percent of American adults think that three decades from now, the U.S. will be less powerful than it is today. Almost two-thirds say it will be even more divided politically. Fifty-nine percent think the environment will be degraded. Nearly three-quarters say that the gap between the haves and have-nots will be wider. A plurality expect the average family’s standard of living to have declined.
