We turn our attention to conflict that is more difficult to handle – and the people that cause it. Tim looks at the reasons Fence Breakers might be reacting the way they are.
Where are the specific conflicts likely to happen when we try to establish fences – or because we don’t? What are the signs that you might have some problem fence areas?
Tim talks about The Family You Grew Up With and gives steps for handling those problem areas.
This teaching arc is based on the book “Boundaries”, by Dr. Cloud and Dr. Townsend, and is supplemented by their other books, Boundaries in Marriage, Boundaries for Teens, and Boundaries for Kids.
