Would you EVER tell your child this?

Posted by   + Show Post

 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.  Our kids have heard us fight.  I told my daughter that it's natural to fight with your significant other (this was when she was having troubles with her ex boyfriend)  I made sure to tell her that it's what you take away from that argument and it helps your relationship grow if you can get past it.

No b/c he would know it was a lie b/c he had seen us fight. And it would be a very stupid lie.

 No, I would not say "Never" but you should rarely fight.  But our children saw us day in and day out all their lives and they know that we very rarely argue (our last was several yrs ago lol) and just discuss anything we need to.  It is better to show them how to have a good marriage than talk.  Our kiddos are all grown now and 12 of the 15 are already married.

 I am a stay at home,  home educating, non-vaxingmother to many children :)  And a very happy wife to a wonderful man!!!
