  • We all know the unwritten rules and most of us abide by them. You don't talk about dad's bathroom habits or post pictures of mom's morning hair. But what if a child, "an inside man" if you will, is telling your secrets to their other home and it's hurting your relationship. Get direct. "Hey, because I love you and want to trust you, I need to ask you to stop." My article, Telling Secrets, gives more details about this. But bottom line: don't be passive, speak up. Your family is worth it.
