with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
I have to say that I agree with her that it is a good thing for your children to see you fight. Not the kind of fighting where voices are raised and horrible things are said, but the kind of fight where you discuss the situation reasonably like two adults should.
I have written before about how my husband and I fight; we fight FAIR. There is no name calling, no insults flung, no screaming matches. I think that my kids will better equipped to handle disagreements in their own relationships as they grow up because they have seen it modeled to them.
They also see that marriage is not perfect, that conflicts arise, but they also see that when you love someone (whether spouse or friend) there is a way to work things out.
How about you? Do you fight in front of your kids?
