In this video I share about how to address a gap that our community member Jen recently identified: the one between “normal bickering, I can ignore this” and “okay, this is dangerous and must be addressed with a family meeting immediately.”
So, I have good news, and bad news:
The bad news is, there isn’t a formula or a set series of steps and utilize to address this gap.
And… That’s kind of also the good news.
Because the flip side of not having a formula or series of steps is that we don’t have to worry about deploying it correctly, or memorizing the steps.
This is about intuition, and trusting ourselves to step in when necessary.
It means we can really only focus on the issue in front of us, and making the decision for THIS moment about holding back or intervening when two kids (or more) are fighting.
