Fostering success in current and future relationships (siblings, friendships, on the job, at school, at home, in the world) is a goal we share!
Here's an idea for families to follow which helps to create and maintain harmony! It is a great reminder with Lifelong Benefits!
Consider discussing this concept with your family and make a poster of the T.H.I.N.K model and hold each other accountable for how we treat one another. Post it in a place for all to see...
Before saying it, ask yourself...
