When a parent is angry, disappointed, or resentful, he/she needs to be cognizant of the fact that the child may become engulfed in the ripple effect. Sadly the child is the one who absorbs the immediate impact of their frustration.
It would be more appropriate for the parent to remove himself or herself before unleashing their fury onto their child. Then the parent can sit in a quiet place until the adrenaline dissipates.
The adult can calmly take several breaths to restore clarity, and move into a more peaceful moment. At this time the parent can rationally see how the child has nothing to do with the discord between mom and dad.
