  • All the time and it messed me up! They should of gotten a divorce or something. After two years being out- I'm good. But it still screwed me up as a kid.

  • I did, thats why I don't think it's good when people stay together for the kids.

  • Yes alllllllllllll the time........ Not good.... I feel it is ok to disagree infront of your children, but not to scream at eachother.

  • My parents use to throw stuff at each other and I even saw my dad try to strangle my mom. Her face was blue! He let go when he saw me watching!

  • Yes& they divorced but still tryed 2 come 2gter 4 me & my bros. I remember 1 time wen I was 9 or so; my 2 lil bros and I were in the living room & I could hear my parents fighting out in the kitchen (this was AFTER divorce btw). I I went in & draged a chair in between them, stood on it & YELLED @ them 2 stop. Thats the only time I can rly remember most clearly but that was def NOT THE1st TIME. My mom told me she heared her parents fight 2 and WISHED theyd divorce (it was agianst their religion). I agree that hearing parents fight def has a bad lasting affect on the kid. Thats y on the rare occassion DH and I do get in a fight we make sure we are in our room with the door locked, we try to be make sure the kids cant hear, I nvr want them to ever have 2 go through that.

  • Yes & I hated it I wanted so bad for my dad to leave my mom...she acted so childish (dad's been dead 3yrs wariniraq) he told me when I was 14 he wouldn't leave her because of me & I think even then he wouldn't have left her she was too much of child....he knew she couldn't do it alone...so now my husband and I pick up her up each time she falls....19 now....life sucks I know my hubby n I will fight in front of our kids I just hope we can do it maturaly lol and not throw things like my mom threw herself on the floor cry @ everything n slam doors..no what sucks is when you have to grow up @ 11 learning to deal with your mom learning to be adult....and letting her be the child
