Reducing parental conflict

Advice for families

Arguments and conflicts in relationships happen to all of us. For some people, the reality is that they are unable to resolve these arguments. Unresolved conflicts between adults can have a significant impact on children. We know that there are many different reasons for conflict in families, for example:

  • debt worries
  • moving home
  • becoming new parents
  • partner fidelity
  • health
  • other stress-inducing issues

The government has recognised that this can have a significant impact on children and their well-being. They have committed to providing increased support across the country for families experiencing conflict. We are working hard to make sure that families are aware of the support that is on offer. We are working with professionals who work with families, to talk about their relationships. We are committed to making sure we listen to families to make sure what we are offering is meeting their needs.
