“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

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