A Thomist learns to party on.
*laughs* Our kids are going to grow up knowing about yelling, but that's mostly because yelling is safe. (From my world view....)When mom (or me, or my sister, or most of mom's family...) is yelling, they're not doing. (Histrionic? Oh, just a bit... but we make folks laugh, too.)Dad, on the other hand, I don't think I EVER heard yell in anger. THAT would terrify me because he's an inherently quiet guy. He'll keep talking, quietly. (which is freaking infuriating when you really want to have a yelling match) My Elf is a third type-- he has a bad temper that is all or nothing, so he either shuts down and goes monosyllabic or turns into Mr. Vulcan.Kit and Kaboodle aren't going to lack for examples of conflict resolution, and I really hope that they'll know better* than to be intimidated by argument format!* Er...but hopefully have more sense than their mother. The only reason I haven't gotten hurt is that folks assume there's no way someone my size would ignore physical menace unless I had good reason.
