Disagreements are inevitable. That's why you need to learn how to "fight fair." How to sit with your anger until you're both able to talk about the issue and give it your full attention. How to listen to what the other person has to say, how to present your perspective in a way that will be heard, and how to give in –– maybe just a little –– and meet the other person in the middle.

For more on the art of working through conflict, read How to Negotiate a Compromise . . . With Your Child, Your Ex, or Anyone Else.
