“Family quarrels are bitter things. They don’t go according to any rules. They’re not like aches or wounds, they’re more like splits in the skin that won’t heal because there’s not enough material.”

– F. Scott Fitzgerald

All families argue, some more than others. While disagreements aren’t a problem in and of themselves, they often come with a good dose of hurtful words, name-calling and button-pushing. No one knows how to tear down a family member like another family member.

These bitter quarrels can cause hurts that go deep, stay long and cause the family unit to become splintered and unstable. In South Orange County family counseling expert Dr. Piper Walsh helps families learn new, more effective ways of communicating with one another.
