Can Parents Fighting Affect A Child's Mental Health?

I recently read an article titled “How Parents Fighting Affects a Child’s Mental Health” at This article was great at explaining how parents fighting in front of children can have a negative effect. When we are mad, we don’t always think about who is watching. Children are very observant. Children actually can pick up on our emotions even though we think we are hiding them well. This article indicates that mature disagreements happen. When mature disagreements happen, we try to keep them out of the view of our children and try not to have name calling. Some parents do not think about how adult disagreements can affect our children. It can actually affect the parent/child relationship, it can cause insecurity for the child, and create a stressful environment for the child. Long term mental effects and decreased cognitive performance can also be contributed to parents fighting in front of their children.

Please remember to fill out the COVID form at if your child has been exposed to someone who tests positive for COVID or if they are positive for COVID. Also, please let Nurse Alicia or the office know.
