When a problem arises ...
Don’t ignore it! And, don’t fan the flames!
Sit down together.
Think before reacting.
Listen to your teenager: to understand, not to respond.
Reflect on your own role in this conflict.
Think about what you really want and need,
not what you are “out to get.”
Look for common concerns.
Focus on the future, not the past.
Work it out.
Make your home a
more comfortable place.
