Do you revisit conflict when tempers have cooled?
When your child has a giant emotional meltdown, do you breathe a sigh of relief after it passes and go about your business?
Don’t prod a sleeping bear, right?
The truth is, the gold is in the second half. When you and your child revisit a conflict with clear heads, you can find solutions. This is where growth happens. It is where you and your child can begin to appreciate each other’s perspectives, and it is where you can find solutions absent of the flood of emotions that were clouding your thoughts in round one.
