The 2-A Choice

We're trying something new here this week. It's called the 2-A choice -- it is basically a reminder to think how to react when someone does or says something you don't like or don't agree with. You have two options:

Argue
or
Analyze

You can argue why they are wrong and you are right, or you can try and figure out - analyze - why they said or did what they did. The hope is that if you can figure out their motivation, you might be more likely to respond with understanding and respect, even if you still disagree, thereby averting a fight.

Hopefully it will make a difference in our home lives!
