Family relations

I think anything you can do to help everyone communicate. Families get into situations where they avoid dealing with things because it’s painful and it’s really close to home. I think it is helpful to constantly remind family members that their actions or lack of actions have an effect on the rest of the family. There’s a level of responsibility that everyone needs to step up to. What I’ve done in my family in situations that are tough is try to get people to that place. Put aside a lot of the character traits that will probably come up again and again because you can’t change people. But you can tap into this idea of the family being a greater unit and that everyone contributes positively and negatively.
