  • We don't talk about the obvious thing that everyone knows about, but no one will address out loud. We think we're keeping peace, but really we're just staying stuck. Like when a child's parent in the other home has an addiction or a behavior issue and you avoid the subject. Hey, speak with respect and compassion for the person, but talk about the issue. Help your kids understand what's going on and give them a godly perspective about what they can do. Awkward? Oh, yeah. But very necessary.

When no one is talking about the elephant in the room, what you should do is…talk about the elephant in the room.

Ron: When no one is talking about the elephant in the room, what you should do is…talk about the elephant in the room.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: Yeah, we shoot ourselves in the foot on this one. For the sake of keeping peace we don’t talk about the obvious thing that everyone knows about, but no one will address out loud. We think we’re keeping peace, but really we’re just staying stuck. Like when a child’s parent in the other home has an addiction or a behavior issue and you avoid the subject.

Hey, speak with respect and compassion for the person, but talk about the issue. Help your kids understand what’s going on and give them a godly perspective about what they can do. Awkward? Oh, yeah. But very necessary. For FamilyLife Blended, I’m Ron Deal.
