Health Tip: Manage Family Arguments

HealthDay News

(HealthDay News) -- Arguments are a natural part of family life, but constant and recurring battles can be exhausting.

The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests how to keep household bickering to a minimum:

  • Pick your battles. Evaluate which issues really need to become a source of dispute.
  • Allow your child to win an argument sometimes. This shows a willingness to negotiate and to see that you may be wrong.
  • Set clear boundaries for arguments.
  • Investigate the cause of recurring conflicts.
  • Set a good example by having strong relationships with your spouse, friends and family.
