Well that can be a hard question to answer when you of course are the child. You could try talking with them together and letting you know how you feel and how it makes you feel to seem them fight. Good Luck.
I would tell both your parents that you don't like the fact that they're fighting. It's hard because a lot of parents put their kids in the middle of their fights.
Explain to your parents it's upsetting you watching/hearing them fight. Talk to your mum or dad alone and maybe ask what it is their arguing about and see if you can help. Sometimes it can be something as simple as cleaning up and you can always take the stress away by helping :)
If they are having problems, they need to sort it out themselves. There's not a lot you can do; you can't fix their relationship.
Sadly, there is really nothing you can do but be there for them. A lot of parents fight, but you have to remember that it is not your fault and they will work things out themselves
The best way to handle parents fighting is to talk to them. Tell them how it makes you feel and what your thoughts are about it. If it bothers you, explain it to them. Tell them that you support them both and want to help make things better. Hopefully, your talks will spark a better relationship between them.
You can decide to talk to your parents about their fighting at a right time, tell them how it makes you feel, and tell them what you expect from them as parents.
