C. Frank McKenzie (Australian National University)
Try to compromise whenever and wherever it's possible. When you see that the people who you love most are happy, you will have a feeling of great happiness. When dealing with family members you need to remember that you want to treat them the same way that you want to be treated1. Make sure that you do not offend family members. Always be polite! Use words and phrases such as please, thank you, I am sorry, I was wrong, I love you, you're welcome, etc.
D. Sara Green (University of Canberra)
You are not always going to agree with your family members, many times you and your family members are going to disagree about a variety of things. Make sure that you do not offend family members. Be careful when disagreeing with them. The best way to do that is always to be well-mannered. Always make eye contact when you are talking to them and avoid being rude and hard. And remember that no matter how old you are, you are still a child for them!
E. Alan Rogers (Alabama State University) Communicate! Show interest in what life was like for them when they were growing up. Try to relate their experiences to your own. Also, show the same interest in what they are doing now. Does your parent work? If so, ask about their work. Take part in family activities, such as birthdays or visiting elderly relatives. Doing things together makes relationships stronger. Eat together. Modern-day life makes this virtually impossible to do, however, it really does change your family life greatly - for the better.
