Conflict between parents is a normal part of relationships and family life. Conflict can be present between parents whether they are together or separated. Not all conflict is damaging. It starts to become a problem when conflict between parents is frequent, intense and poorly resolved. This information is for parents whether together, separated or considering separation, who want to find ways to improve their relationship and get on better. Our resources can support you to find helpful ways to communicate during stressful times.
