15 Calm Ways to Solve Relationship Problems

DON’T USE THREATS

“Never resort to name-calling or threats of leaving the relationship. These do not promote a sense of collaboration; instead, they say that you’re more interested in hurting than problem-solving.

But it’s damaging to hurt with words or threats.” -Jim Seibold, Ph.D., marriage and family therapist.
