While putting the discrepancies Among the members of a marriage are inevitable, knowing how to cope with these situations is what differentiates between reaching a common point or thinning the environment.

Behavioral problems

As indicated in this work, the first effect of continued exposure to discussions on the part of children are behavioral problems.

- There are topics that are not spoken in front of children. It is always better to choose privacy if the topic is likely to increase tension.

- Keep calm. You should never get carried away by nerves, if the dialogue begins to get tense the best thing is to stop and breathe before saying something to regret.

- The reason is relative. It is never good to impose a point of view for many reasons that you think you have, you have to know how to listen to the motives of the other person and reach a common point.
