When you and your partner fight, how do you resolve the issue?
Sometimes it just takes time to move on from something small, sometimes you have to talk it out, and if you're Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard, you talk it out and resolve the fight in front of your kids.
I know you're probably thinking, 'say whaaat?' so let me explain.
The parents recently opened up the way that they teach their daughters, Delta, 5, and Lincoln, 3, how to resolve conflict - and it's actually a tip they learned in couple's counseling.
During a visit to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles earlier this week, Dax opened up about how they talk things through.
“You know, generally, kids see their parents get in a fight and then parents sort it out in a bedroom and then later they’re fine, so the kid never learns, how do you de-escalate? How do you apologize? So we try, as often as possible, to do that in front of them. If we fought in front of them, we want to also make up in front of them.”
I get their point! Basically, teach your kids how to resolve a fight, and not just show them a fight and that at some point it magically gets all better.
I don't know how comfortable I personally would be with resolving fights with Michael in front of the kids as they get older, but I do see the benefit of being able to have these conversations in front of your kids as a lesson.
At the end of the day, all couples fight at one point or another. There's definitely a lesson to be learned for kids about resolving fights! But would you ever be comfortable resolving fights in front of your children?
The only people I could imagine doing this are TOTALLY Dax and Kristen.
