From time to time, it is really normal to disagree with people in your family. Even people who love each other fight some times, and there is nothing wrong with fighting. Family members have different points of view and different ways of doing things, and so sometimes they clash.
In some families, fighting doesn't happen much at all, in others it happens a lot and in some families it happens somewhere in the middle.
Regardless of how much your family fights, it's important to think about HOW you fight, HOW you sort things out afterwards and HOW you look after yourself if the fighting around you gets scary and upsetting.
While at the time, fighting with someone can feel pretty yucky, learning to fight fair and how to sort things out after a fight can be a really great thing to learn.
What kind of fighting happens?
In families there is sometimes:
- fighting between parents (which can be kind of scary and upsetting for kids to see and hear)
- fighting between kids and parents and
- fighting between brothers and sisters
REMEMBER!!! IT'S OK TO FEEL ANGRY...BUT ITS NOT OK TO HURT SOMEONE with your body OR words.
