The most common things parents do when they are about to "have it out" is send their kids to their rooms, according to a scientist at Washington State University thats actually a big 'no no'! After a lengthy and careful study she came to the conlcusion that "Kids are good at picking up subtle cues from emotions... If they feel something negative has happened, and the parents are acting normal and not addressing it, that's confusing for them. Those are two conflicting messages being sent." Instead parents should allow their kids to witness how they deal with their problems because 'That helps kids learn to regulate their own emotions and solve problems. They see that problems can get resolved. It's best to let the kids know you feel angry, and tell them what.'
