Acknowledging that a certain amount of fighting in families is inevitable, psychologist Dr Janet Hall outlines how some fights can be prevented and how others can be quickly resolved with a minimum of conflict, which provides both a necessary release of pent-up feelings and a path towards healing.

Janet Hall encourages parents to teach their children how to relate well to each other, and demonstrates how a win/win resolution to fights can be achieved. Fight-Free Families
