It’s been a stressful day and you can’t wait to go home to relax. Stepping through your front door, you nearly fall as you stumble over your son’s skateboard. You become instantly irritated, and as if it’s automatic, you’ve yelled at your son to come downstairs. You find yourself having the same argument you’ve already had three times this week, and after the argument, nothing has changed and you’re both upset. Sound familiar? Be it missed curfews, unfinished chores or messy habits, these recurring and seemingly small arguments can have detrimental effects on the relationships with your children, plus foster feelings of unhappiness in the household.
