Service pieces are my forte–I love writing features that will help people live their lives better. This post is one that’s particularly close to my heart. I wish someone had sent the same advice my way when I was a kid.
For some families, fights seem like a routine. Perhaps you’re in your room listening to music or studying when you hear the raised voices.

Cue the freak-out. Here’s how to survive fights that have absolutely nothing to do with you.
