How many people do you know who are struggling or frustrated with some aspect of a relationship in their lives, any relationship? Many, I would guess. In fact, I would venture to say that everyone is dealing with some unease or discomfort in some relationship right now, whether with a co-worker, a boss, a spouse, a friend, a sibling, a child or some other family member. Relationship discord is so so common and for this reason, I wanted to offer one thought and suggestion to ...

How often when you’re in disagreement with someone- a spouse, a friend, a colleague or boss, do you say to each other “We have different opinions on this matter. Let’s just agree to disagree and move on”? I don’t know about you, but for me, I get into these no-argument stalemate positions often, especially with someone who is on the “other side of the aisle” from me regarding a related to a political, religious or social issue.

What if every time your child cries or tantrums, he or she is actually doing something highly worthwhile? We don’t always appreciate it when our children begin to cry, but what they are actually doing is making use of the body’s innate recovery system. When we are hurt, physically or emotionally, instead of storing it up in our bodies as tension, we can use it by crying, raging or trembling. This is how the body processes and releases feelings. Many of us don’t do ...

If you’re the parent of a young child, you know how difficult it can be to get your kid to apologize when they have wronged a friend, sibling or playground foe. Let me paint an all-too-common picture. Moms and dads are casually sipping their lattes, chit-chatting on the perimeter of a playground. Kids are playing and having a great time—until they’re not. Two 4-year-olds, Billy and Lisa, have reached the top of the much-loved twisty slide at the exact same time. Lisa (a little ...
