 Talking About Parental Conflict With Dad can Help Boost Self-Esteem Among Adolescents

Researchers at San Francisco State University have found that talking about their argument with their fathers following parental conflict can not only strengthen an adolescent's relationship with his dad but also improve his self esteem.

The researchers conducted their study on a group of 392 families who were asked about conflicts between adolescents and their fathers or step fathers. Both the children and the fathers were asked who they turned to for advice following the conflict and the children were also asked whether they felt anything differently about themselves and their fathers after taking advice.

The researchers found that the children were most likely to talk with their mothers about the conflict while taking about it with their relatives, friends and even the fathers themselves led to positive effects.

"When kids get explanations and good reasons that fit with the world they see, it helps them feel better. It's sometimes hard to change how adolescents feel about situations, but we can talk to them about how they think about those situations", lead researcher Jeff Cookston said.
