There is a significant difference between a conflict, an argument, and a fight. A conflict is an incompatibility of viewpoints that lasts an extended amount of time. An argument is an exchange of different ideas; it's shorter but can become heated if you're not careful. A fight is defined as a violent confrontation. Conflicts are unavoidable, arguments can be managed, but a fight is something to be avoided.
Children who witness their parents fighting can become deeply affected by it. It can have a negative impact not only on their mental health but also on their relationships and ability to solve conflict productively in their own lives. Kids are sponges, soaking up the behavior they see in the world and mimicking it as a way of learning how to interact with others. This book is here to teach you how to adjust the way you approach conflict to have a positive effect on your children rather than a negative one.
