Family Experiment: Domestic Violence

Most of you who know us or have read our books know that we like Family Experiments.  We see it as a way to climb inside the minds and hearts of our kids, to better understand what they are thinking and feeling, and also as a means of helping them develop more critical thinking.   We’ve in the past recommended experiments like the Technology Sabbath, a Strengths Assessment, and from time to time will send you a link to a video to show your kids and ask some thoughtful questions after viewing.

Tragically, there has been even more media coverage in recent months of violence against women and children, at the hands of celebrities and professional athletes.  Take a few minutes to show this video to your kids and continue an important dialogue about domestic violence and learning to regulate emotions in a healthy way.
