Remember, last month, when I talked about the tension in our household due to all the summer togetherness here? Here's a recap:
This was becoming a pattern for us until I read an article, which gave me the idea for the blue hearts. So after a month of seeing little blue hearts attached to the places that cause the most tension, did it work? Did I yell less? Are we still a family?
I am happy to report that it DID WORK! I mean, we aren't perfect and we still had a few days that couldn't be salvaged, but we did see drastic improvement over the arguments and yelling and crying. There was also an increase in hugs and kisses and giggles!
Have you tried this?
