The lead author of the study, psychologist Chrystyna D. Kouros, Southern Methodist University said that children suffer consequences when mom and dad argue or have tension in their relationship, and while moms compartmentalize marital conflict after first day, dads let the negative emotions and tension from their marriage spill over and harm the bond they have with their child.

According to the study, the quality of a marriage is closely tied to each parent's bond with their child as when parents reported tension and conflict in their marriage, simultaneously that day's interactions with their child were peppered with tension and conflict.

The study was published in the Journal of Family Psychology.
