  • There must be no interruptions while the parents are presenting their own opinion into the matter which will avoid any fight and the clarity of information will be obtained.
  • The parents must call Each Other by their names without using the words he or she.
  • The process of blaming and attacking the other party must not be done and this will avoid the fight of the parties involved. There must be no putting down of each other by commenting on the personal lives they have.
