Honor favor #8: Helping others in conflict

The resources for handling conflict equip a person to have healthy relationships. Unfortunately, many people don't have the skills to address conflict. Once your family has learned to handle conflict in honoring ways, you can pass those skills on to others. One mom told how her son, age ten, came home from playing at the park and said, "I left because the boys were fighting. They can't decide how to divide up the teams. You could help us, Mom. You know how to do it so everyone ends up feeling good.  We went back over to the park and I asked the boys if they needed help. They allowed me to help and resolve the problem in an honoring way." After hearing that Aaron and Cynthia were thinking about getting a divorce, the Davis family invited them to come and live in their home for a couple of weeks. Just living in an honoring home made an impression. The Davis family taught this couple how to communicate effectively and learn to value each other. This gave them a new vision in their relationship.
