How the relationship between mom and dad affects the child

In India, couples often get married quite young, and progress to the next step of having a child soon afterward. Unfortunately, a lot of these couples are fairly mentally, physically and financially unprepared for the challenges of parenthood. Ideally, a couple needs to give time to making themselves emotionally and otherwise stable as a unit, before thinking of a child. Often, couples think that if they do not show their relationship problems, their children will not be affected – which is far from true! So how does the state of our marriage affect our children? Our Proparent blogger Swapna Nair helps us understand just that, and more.

  1. Understanding the responsibility of parenthood-how deeply does your relationship with your partner affect your child? What are the long-term effects? Read on to find out
  2. A child from a happy home will grow up to be more secure and an active learner-so what are the developmental and behavioural indicators of a child brought up in a happy home, as opposed to a child whose parents are not happy in their relationship?
  3. Criticism, expressing contempt and partners avoiding each other lead to stressful relationships. What can help us create a more positive and loving relationship with our partner?

Read ahead to find out how you and your partner can be happier together and create a positive home environment for your children…

While most parents have their child’s best interest in mind, they may define ‘best’ in their own different ways. https://www.parentcircle.com/article/mum-vs-dad-dealing-with-differences-in-parenting-styles/

I feel very bad and ashamed that we both are fighting for years and now it has effected my 7 years child. She has low esteem not confident, always cries, no friends and it's all because if us. I regret now and past 1 year only i am thinking only for my child but her father still fights. Please help me, I want my child to be very happy confident. She is very hard working honest does all work, very neat, she never harms or shouts on anybody, good at academics loves dancing n drawing. i never restrict her from doing anything but I could feel our fights has effected her life. I keep asking sorry to her, she immediately forgives me. She is very loving child we both share a great bond. Iam pregnant with my second child its been three months n almost cry everyday. No emotional support. Please guide me.

Dear Ranjit, Yes I totally understand. When the couple are always thinking that each of them is right, fights will happen. But if we change our perspective - hey let me listen to the other or I could be wrong/ would this benefit / it is ok let me make up/ let me make this work / how else Can we work this out- just the fact that we are ready to be responsive and responsible goes a long way in making the marriage work for the couple and the family.

Nice information At same time i was affected because of my parents. Let me describe my story in 200words. How the relationship between mom and dad affects the child? Yes i was affected, My parents are well educated and financially too, but they have spoiled my education. Parents details: Father - EX-Airforce Mother - Airforce (CSD) 1st Mistake They were not good husband and wife (always fighting) till date. 2nd Mistake They were changed my syllabus from CBSE hindi to Martic Tamil in 4th STD and again i changed syllabus to hindi in 7th std because of my very very poor education in Tamil and other subject also. 3rd Mistake In 10th std i was failed for two times and again in 12th std i was failed for two times . Till date i didn't turn back to my balance education. So my education are totally spoiled because of my parents and still am struggling in my life. This is effect till my next generation. All these mistake has been done by parents. SO DEAR PARENTS, MY REQUEST IS NEVER AND EVER FIGHT BEFORE YOUR KIDS IT WILL HURTS THEM LOT BECAUSE KIDS ARE TURN ON TO THE MENTALLY AND PHYSICALLY CHALLENGED. Thanks, Ranjith Kumar
