Upset child listening to parents argue

New online videos help arguing parents make small changes

Have you ever seen yourself arguing? It’s not a pretty sight.

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 do to make life easier for everyone in the family.

#SeeItDifferently – New trainers

#SeeItDifferently – Withdrawal

Developed 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.

Skills like ‘Staying calm’, ‘Speaking for yourself’ and ‘Re-thinking how you say things’ can change how things play out in your household and let you, your family and your children see it differently.

Remember, you don’t see your arguments.


Your kids do.
