“Conflict is inevitable, but combat is optional.” – Max Lucado (American author)

However, a family’s mental and physical health may be badly impacted by recurring patterns of conflict, especially among youngsters.

Parenting and preserving our family unit depends on mending rifts brought on by misunderstandings, mismatches, and failure to tune into one another.

  • Admit the wrongdoing

We ought to make an effort to locate and comprehend the harm we have brought about. This is an excellent time to lower our guard and pay attention to how the other person is feeling, whether it was intentional or not, and whether there was a valid reason for it or not. The best approach to demonstrate humanity is to express our pain without qualifying it. Verifying our understanding can be beneficial. We must adopt a transparent and sincere strategy.


  • Show remorse

Sometimes expressing regret is enough, or at least a great beginning to start. Let us avoid going too far, as well. When we apologize excessively or too quickly, we risk making the situation more about us than the person we have offended.


  • Give a brief explanation

A brief explanation can help the other person understand our behavior if they are prepared to hear it. However, we should keep in mind to concentrate on the other person’s perspective rather than a laundry list of justifications for bad behavior and refrain from using this as a chance to air further grievances or place blame for problems that have just surfaced.


  • Practice stating what you want to do to make things right and prevent it from happening again

If we plan to continue acting in the same way, there is little purpose in apologizing and moving past the issue. Family conflict may frequently be avoided, however, if it cannot, family relationships can be repaired honestly so that they can continue to exist.
