Because human beings learn to use language as children, we're ALL prone to communication and conflict mistakes as adults. We say the wrong things. We send messages we don't intent to send. We get reactions that both surpise us and cause grief for ourselves. Worse, though, our ineffective language habits damage our relationships with spouses, children, other family members, friends and at work with colleagues and "superiors". Sometimes the damage is minor. Sometimes relationships founder on the rocks of consistently bad ways of talking. Regardless if you find yourself in unnecessary arguments, or unable to solve sticky and persistent issues in your marriage, dating relationships and family, here's a solution.
