Amidst the anger, show kindness….

…at all times. It’s difficult when someone in the family is angry and upset. It’s easy to join in with the party and give your opinion (because everyone wants to be right, right?) You toy with the idea that your way would have been better. She shouldn’t have said this; he shouldn’t have said that.

It would be lovely if it’s happy families all the time but in reality it isn’t. It’s inevitable that there will time of rough patches and arguments. Some last just a few minutes, some go for hours (those hours of silences), and then it’s all in the past and you go back to playing happy families.

Amidst all of that, if you are like me, you will want to know the answer to ‘How should I act right now?’ or ‘What is the best thing to do?’ I could throw my toys out of the pram, I could take it out on the person, or I could get involved (in times where I wasn’t actually involved at all).

When you’re not sure… kindness helps.

Kind words…

Kind gestures…

Cup of tea? A few crackers and cheese?

A hug?

What do you do when it’s all happening in your house?

Until next time…
