The good news about the summer is that families get together at reunions, barbeques and other happy events. The bad news is those gatherings can be ripe with tension.
Like most of the life lessons I learned as a kid, one that sticks in my mind is the simple phrase, do over.
Our children listen to our words, but even more closely observe our actions. Families have disagreements and conflicts and may say hurtful things that can’t be taken back. These conflicts are sometimes unavoidable.
When conflicts happen, call a do-over, just like you did when you were a kid because your kids are watching.
Quarrels would not last long if the fault were only on one side. – Duke François de La Rochefoucauld
