Whether the arguments may be between two parents or between the parents and the child, either way it is detrimental for the child — especially if the child begins to understand the contents of their parents’ bicker. Of course, one can easily see how arguments with the parents can affect the child — not many are going to be happy about getting yelled at, right? But probably not many has considered the effects of bickering between parents on the child. Yes, parents aren’t directly yelling at/against the child but they are bringing up problems that they have in a way that the child may start to understand after a while. In some ways, this may make the child mature faster as they begin to understand the many burdens of their parents but in others, this will impose more stress on the child in addition to whatever stress they may have from school or social life. If parents insist on having the best for their child, this should be something they take into consideration — stop thinking they don’t understand so it’s fine to bicker in front of them because they will understand one day and then you are the one putting extra pressure on them. – Vivian
