Good family relationships are enjoyable for their own sake and they also help your children feel secure and loved. As a parent, you are doing the best you can to care for your children at the same time as juggling work, friends, looking after the home and trying to keep your own relationship strong as a couple. There’s also no denying that having children, especially in the early years, puts a huge demand on everyone and relationships can suffer. There are organisations and services that can provide advice, tips and support to help keep your relationships strong and provide support and guidance if relationships break down.
See It Differently
We all argue sometimes. Whether that’s with our partners, our parents or other family members, life stresses can put strain on families and lead to conflicts which can impact on children’s mental health and long-term outcomes. Social change charity Good Things Foundation have partnered with relationship experts One Plus One to produce 4 short videos which show small changes that we can all make to make life easier for everyone in the family.
Made in partnership with families around the UK, these videos reflect common daily situations and offer up a different way of doing things to reduce the impact of arguments on children.
Remember, you don’t see your arguments. Your kids do.
