I think anyone who has children and a spouse has been guilty of arguing in front of the kids at one point or another. You really try not to, but sometimes things just happen. Whenever we disagree in front of the boys, we make sure to use it as a learning situation. We'll ask them if they like to see us argue, when they say no, we tell them that is how we feel when they argue. We also explain that while you can have a difference of opinion, it doesn't always have to end up in a fist fight as it so often does with the boys. My husband and I rarely argue and have never physically fought.

We try not too. Especially in front of the little one who doesn't have the life experience yet to know it's not a big deal & it's just an argument. We both realize it must be scary to hear your parents fight when you are small. But with that said, even knowing we shouldn't & trying not to, sometimes it happens. I can be rather sarcastic & mean (to adults not to my children!) when I am angry and I know I sometimes say things I shouldn't say at all & I especially shouldn't say in front of my children.

We do not fight or argue in front of our daughter. I wouldn't want to scar her for life, by giving her so bad memories of her parents.

I would say, its very seldom we fight. We argue on some issues, give out our own point of view and if its becoming to be a heated discussion, either I would keep silent or move out of his sight for a while. We dont want our kids to see that we argue.

When I was with my ex we did fight in front of the kids sometimes. My daughter ysed to tell us to stop shouting at each other. I did try not to, but sometimes I couldn't help it. It is much better now we are split, as we dono't fight any more.

Once an argument starts in front of child then it becomes very much difficult to avoid fighting in front of the child.In fit of anger we just forget who there or who is near us.
