Have a Safe Word To Stop The Escalation

This piece of advice can be a game-changer and will help you calm down in the heat of an argument.

“In some situations, some arguments, you are not able anymore to control your words. So having a safe word is a great way to stop the escalation:
  • It gives a warning signal to avoid hurting each other

  • You can resume the conversation once both of you have calmed down

  • You should use an easy word to remember (fruits or vegetables for example)

It’s a way to say « time out » and to make sure the conversation won’t be counterproductive.”
