Disagreeing about how to handle issues with the children can be the cause of much conflict. All too often, the children are aware that the conflicts are about them and feel much guilt and shame — often leading to lower self-esteem and insecurity. Many times parents think that the children are not within earshot of their disagreements, but be assured, they pick up the tension in the home.
