Support for parents in a relationship
When life is going well our relationships tend to thrive, so we feel supported and able to cope with life’s ups and downs.
We need to have difficult conversations from time to time to resolve arguments or to let our partner know our worries. It’s how we manage these conversations that ensures our relationship and family environment works together positively to keep everyone feeling secure and loved.
Find out more about harmful and helpful arguments.
When family life is good, we're more likely to recognise our partner's good qualities and the support they provide us and our children.
When day to day niggles or grumbles start to take over, we can be less aware of the positive moments.
