Carmen and I found two areas involving family issues. One is what we call non-family communication emergencies. We examine those issues in another Section. The other we discuss here and call family communication emergencies.
Family communication emergencies tend to involve ineffective communication, not getting along, and controlling family members. They become emergencies when a senior’s health, happiness or livelihood is put in jeopardy. They also become emergencies when family harmony is broken, and emotional energy is spent healing hurt feelings.
These challenges involve family members not talking to one another, certain family members trying to control others’ lives, and family members being ostracized from one another.
