Arguments are a natural part of a Massachusetts marriage. They are necessary to push one another, to settle disagreements, to make feelings known, and arrive at the best solutions.

Yelling at Massachusetts kids feels like an inevitability as a parent.

Maybe it started with a snide comment or passive-aggressive sigh. Or maybe the why-do-you-always-take-the-kids-side argument turned into an hour long fight that touched on everything. Whatever happened, things escalated. Tempers flared, frustrations were vented, eyes were rolled, feelings were hurt. Eventually, you lost your cool and called your wife a bitch.
