This is a tough one. At some point in life, we are going to have to confront someone on something. It’s never easy. At least not for me. Employers face confrontation often. I’ve watched Kris address various situations with our pilots. He’s pretty straight forward with them. And, when the ball is put in my court, I’m more like “Oh, heyyyy. You think maybe you could empty the coffee on the airplanes when your trip is over? I know it’s a lot, but it would really help us out.”
Kris is not so sugary. Not.One.Bit.
I’ve had to teach my children, well, John Henry, how to use words to stand up for themselves. I want them to feel empowered to guard their hearts. When someone says or does hurtful things, I’ve told them to tell that person that they don’t like it when he or she does or says __________________.
Anna does not struggle with confrontation. She is like her daddy that way.
Confrontation is not something we look forward to. But, it is necessary.
How do you handle confrontation?
Have you talked to your children about confrontation?
