Toddler moms , how do you handle any arguments with husband in front of your kids? I had one today and am feeling very guilty.

Hello, I know how bad it is for us to do that in front of our kids but we are humans and it's bound to happens on some days.Try and calm down and make a conscious effort to avoid it.Talk to your partner too about it.

hey we all knw its bad. as long as it doesnt happen in front of them too often its ok. sometimes is actually fine so they understand thats what life is about. but try to avoid in front of them as they might get stressed out. my child definitely gets stressed out. and yes, it pains me. but we are all human so.... just dont feel guilty. and dont be hard on urself. hv a cool chat wth ur hubby and tell him u need to do a timeout whn the kids are around. go hug ur kids and just say mom & dad just fight sometimes but make up like kids do. tc

I WhatsApp fight with my husband!!! this gives me time to think and analyse. when we speak and argue we tend to say things which we would like to later take back. over chatting our kids are out of the argument and our fights don't blow out of proportions. but it's ok if it happened once in a while in front of them.

Dr. Farah Adam . Haha. Whatsapp fight makes it worse for me!I always regret most of the chat

This is a tough but very important one....set some ground raised voices or name calling...just stay away and post pone the fight. That way baby doesnt witness and it gives time to think

it sumtimes happn though v keep it in mind tht v r not tht loud ever infront of kid.
but whenevr v r in argumnt i have noticed nysha gets still and she quietly see us rathr thn saying anything. and as soon as she is in tht posture me n hubby starts laughing. thts makes us cool down and it makes nysha feel tht all is well between us. its sumtimes difficult but helps us a lot.

I completely agree with asha chaudhry. It is ok to have arguments once in a while in front of the kids. But if it is getting ugly, it is best to pause and discuss it when both have calmed down a bit

superb advises from Super moms... i also need it

Try to avoid arguments with anyone in front of your kids. It is not good for their psychological makeup.

agree with @asha c.
at a parenting workshop, the speaker had mentioned this. tht its ok to let the child witness a fight between the parents  tht way they do know tht something like this is normal in a relationship. else when they see it outside  they don't know wht to make of it. but do explain urself if this happens

its very hard to handle it.. but thankfully v don't argue r fight much in front of my child.. I used to tell things once r twice rarely thrice... but mostly its Like a convo.. in this two yrs of parenting v had lose our temper two times oly.. I think its fair too to teach children about relationships... kids shud know arguing is okay but it won't go beyond the limit... more arguments leads to irritating... that's Wat I follow..

I think Arguing in front of kids is not okay rather we should opt for a healthy discussion on any issue everyone is entitled to his/her opinion. I believe getting angry is the easiest thing to do but it won't take you anywhere.  when we argue knowingly or unknowingly we might drag the past situation , insult each other or may be stereotypical. 

its best not to react or jus walk .away.. sometimes its jus inevitable.. but rope in the anger or whatever u want to say and let it go .. its not worth it when ur childs around .. it is difficult when u really want to speak ur mind.. but honestly it can be tackled later .. make urself busy playinf wirh ur child .. all anger will dissipate.

It's ok if it's not a routine. They also should face the reality that everything every time is not happy there are happy, angry, disagree and sad so many emotions. And it's ok to display all of them.

when u r very stressed don't argue ...reply in yes or no only.. ur this types of behaviour will develope patience in ur kid.
don't be guilt happens sometimes..tell him it's a sweet fight only...
