This sentence came from a book called Screamfree marriage. Basically this concept will be explained below.
- Calm down (collect your thoughts, never do or say anything in the midst of anger)
- Grow up (ask yourself, if this is really what you want? Otherwise, review your actions and be honest to yourself, so that you can improve)
- Get closer (you should seek to connect, even though it might not turn out well, it is definitely better than just switching off)
- Repeat (repetition leads to a more efficient process and will ingrain this thinking into your daily life)
Being first-time parents, I would be lying if I say that I do not quarrel with my wife over baby domo. In fact, the frequency of our quarrels has increased and revolves mostly about the care of baby domo.
It is definitely a difficult concept to grasp and practise, but having the knowledge is half the battle won.
This concept can be applied not just to parenting also investing.
