Questions About Imperfect Homes

One thing that can be unsettling for children is when their parents disagree, because if this it may raise questions. First our children need to know that mommy and daddy aren’t perfect and two imperfect people living under the same roof may not always agree.   As always we need to be aware that children observe everything and make sure that if we disagree in front of the kids we are appropriate to each other

This maybe a great discussion to teach your children about marriage that even though two people love each other they don’t always agree. It can also be a great thing to use to teach your children about God.  Even though mommy and daddy aren’t perfect and make mistakes, their Heaven Father is perfect.

The hard questions about home issues can be used to start discussions with your children.  However, if the issues are more severe never put your children in the middle of the arguments or cause them to half to choose sides between mom and dad.  This is very distressing for them.
