As the adults of the family, you and your partner set the tone for the home and the family. Children and young adults are simply observers who often model adult behavior. So, when there’s shouting or use of physically aggressive behavior as conflict resolution strategies, the children begin to adopt this as a way to resolve their conflict and disagreements as well.

Acts of Kindness - Online and Offline

Posted by Imago Relationships North America on Sep 18, 2019, 11:15:00 AM

We all wish for a better and kinder world, less social media bashing and more likes that translate in our real lives.
