Here one example, A family with two small children is living a life happily. on occasions they used to eat mutton of a goat with their family members and relatives. when the butcher was cutting the throat of goat the children had seen that and when the parents are busy on one day. The elder children cut the throat of his brother......
From this story, we have to be more alarmed and very sensitive and humble in front of the children. so never quarrel in front of the children and never do any things that effects badly o the behavior of the children......
"Be cool and Stay focused".
"Do not give up, things might not favour you always"
This can hurt the young minds who have always seen parents as the most friendly and caring adults. Once the child is mature enough to understand the meaning of family life and work stress, then its a surprise that they become the mediators, Our older one is a teenager who often breaks silly arguments between us!
Yes, we should certainly refrain from arguments in front of a toddler or a 5 year old. If you remember good family oriented English movies, the father or mother would say 'kids can you go your bedrooms, we need to have an adult talk or mommy & Daddy have to talk on an important issue. Maybe we can follow it, whenever possible.
