How quarrel among family members can affect a child? Is it normal a child said he don't feel anything or scared when adults are fighting?

2y ago

When adults quarrel, it creates a deep sense of insecurity and uncertainty in the child's internal state. To the child, the parents are their concept of the whole world. When there are conflicts between parents and family members, the child feels unsafe, and their whole world collapse. If they were to respond that they do not feel anything, a part of them shut down the overwhelming emotions - in another words, there is internal suppression of the emotions. And one day it will show up when it is being triggered.
