I have found that if a couple fails to communicate with each other, it has a trickle down effect on the children.
Fighting and being disrespectful to your partner only shows your children that this is the way to be heard.
They will copy our behaviors in order to get what they want from others.
This is what you are teaching them to do in a relationship, be it with friendships or further down the line in their lives with a partner.

I can help this situation by teaching and coaching the family system as a whole on how to speak and be heard, and how to listen and understand what the other is trying to say.
