Relationships under Covid19
Whether you’re together or separated, the way you and your partner communicate can impact on your children. All relationships have tricky moments it’s how they’re experienced and resolved that matters. Of course, disagreements and arguments are completely normal and part of everyday life but if it is becoming a problem then you can get help. Parental conflict is not the same as domestic abuse – if you are afraid of your partner or feeling that they control your life then this is more likely to be domestic abuse, please seek help either from your local council or the NSPCC.
If you are not sure who your local council is, visit https://www.gov.uk/find-local-council for further information or you can get more information from https://www.nspcc.org.uk/what-is-child-abuse/types-of-abuse/domestic-abuse/

- Is there sulking, silent treatment, slamming doors or walking away from each other?
- Are you anxious or worried and is this getting in the way of managing everyday life?
