Overcoming Conflict at Family Gatherings

Summer is well underway. We are headed out to visit our extended family. If you are like us, we tend to stay up late, visit a lot and eat way too much food!

During summer, we have opportunities for great get-togethers with the extended family. Swim parties, barbecues, family reunions, picnics - the possibilities are endless.

With multiple generations and all the different personalities, conflict may seem inevitable - but it isn't! I recently appeared as a guest on the Texas Conflict Radio show. Pattie Porter, the Texas Conflict Coach and I explored easy and effective ways to avoid conflict at the many extended family gatherings we will have this summer. Please listen to it, take notes if you like and contact me with any questions or comments.
