Friendly Fire

with Ron Deal | December 4, 2018

What if you're at dinner with two friends and they start arguing and try to get you to take their side. You likely feel threatened. Anxious. Stuck in the middle. And to cope you might distance yourself to find safety or try to fix the situation. Now, parents and co-parents, no matter their age-that's exactly how your children feel when you argue. Oh, and they lose respect for you, too. Contain your conflict and keep your kids out of the middle.
