Would you EVER tell your child this?

 So, we were watching HOUSE the other day and there was a couple on the show who told their child:

"If you really love someone (like husband and wife) you NEVER fight"

Would you ever tell your child this?

No way. And I definitely wouldn't buy that people never fight. I couldn't lie to our Kids like that. They'd get slapped in the face by reality later in life and think of me as a liar.

People fight, it's human nature. I think telling your kid something like that sets them up to be submissive. Fighting is a normal thing in relationships. No, I'd never tell my child that.

 No, I wouldn't because if you don't stand up for yourself it eventually eats you up inside!  There is a way to work things out, and fighting maybe one of those....

 Nope, because that's not true.

Nope. People get upset and that's normal. What I WILL tell them though is that sometimes we have to say sorry afterwards if we say something that we didn't mean.

 NO!!!  I know this is going to sound bad to some, but I'd rather have my children see DH and I disagree and then resolve the issue than give them that type of false idea.  I don't think that's a healthy message to be sending.

 Nope! Fighting is healthy....to a degree! And that whole don't go to bed mad thing is BS too! :)
