The Good Fight

A new study from Lehigh University found that it doesn’t matter how often mothers argue with their toddlers — like so much in life, quality is more important than quantity. So, what makes a “quality” argument? Both people justifying their opinions and then reaching a compromise without anyone insisting on their particular point of view without explaining it, teasing, or engaging in other negative behavior. This is good to remember when fighting with people who may no longer be toddlers but still act like them. [NLM]
