When parent relationships are in distress and there is poor communication between the parents, children can be put in one or more of these positions by their parents which can have a negative impact on the child and effect the relationship they have with their parents.

Asking your child to fill one of these roles can be damaging to the child's relationship to both parents or other family members and can greatly impact on a child's life. 

Relationship breakdown can also have an effect on health, find out more below.
