How to End Frequent Fights in a Relationship

Many couples believe fights and arguments in a relationship to simply be a normal part of being together and sharing your life so intimately with another person. However, it doesn’t have to be this way, and if your fights are frequent, aggressive, or lead to more bad emotions than they should, then it certainly shouldn’t be this way. Whilst disagreements are a normal part of a healthy relationship, it’s important to note that they should never result in name-calling, aggression, or have devastating effects on other areas of your life. If you find that you and your spouse seem to be constantly at war with one another, then it’s a sure sign of an unhealthy relationship, even if you love each other very much. Here are some top tips to help you put all the bad fights with your partner to an end.

Tip #1. See a Therapist:

If the fights between you and your spouse are getting out of hand and there seems to be nothing that you can do to talk it through and come to a solution together, then you may benefit from the services of a professional, impartial therapist. One of the main benefits of seeing a professional counselor about your relationship problems is that they will be completely unbiased and able to look at your relationship through objective eyes, unlike your friends and family members who know you.
For couples with busy lives, an online relationship counselor can be the best solution since you can access their services from the comfort of your own home.

Tip #2. Practice Mindfulness:

Whilst it can be easy to pass all the blame onto your spouse when you are in the middle of a heated fight, it’s important to remember that it takes two. Even if your partner isn’t being cooperative with your efforts to fight less and communicate better, you can at least focus on yourself and how you personally handle your disagreements. If you tend to get angry quickly and say a lot of negative things that end up making fights worse, then it’s important to work on this yourself so that you can improve things overall in the relationship.
A good way to gain more control over your thoughts and emotions to make it easier for you to deal with fights and provocation is through practicing mindfulness meditation. When you become more mindful of your negative thoughts, it is easier for you to deal with them and avoid turning them into things that can make tense situations in your relationship worse.

Tip #3. Encourage Better Communication:

One of the main culprits of bad relationship fights is a lack of good communication. Often, couples will keep their thoughts and opinions of each other to themselves, only to blurt them all out in an exaggerated fashion when they fall out about something. Instead, encourage the two of you to talk to each other calmly and openly about the things that you aren’t happy with, rather than waiting until a fight happens to get it all out. Again, this is something that a therapist can help with.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
