Could it have damaged my toddler to see two family members fighting?

My toddler saw me and my brother fighting and shouting at each other. He cried and got scared. What can I do? Will it affect his character?

Everyone is human--even parents. Tell your child that you got upset and yelled and that is not ok. Tell her that you love your sibling ? (unclear who is fighting with who here) and that you will try to do better when you use your words to express your feelings.

The answers from our experts are for educational purposes only. Please always refer to your child's pediatrician and mental health expert for more in-depth advice.
