One Thing That Helps Many Family Relationships

Setting aside one-on-one time with a child or partner can help sort through many tensions at home especially if you can:

1. Plan the “date” ahead of time.
2. Avoid any distractions while together.
3. Enjoy each other before talking through any difficult topics. If a concern is “thorny” increase the amount of time having fun.
4. Only discuss one difficulty. Be patient. A successful discussion readily leads to more another time.
