Laura Ingraham hosted Bruce Feiler, author of The Secrets of Happy Families.
Feiler said he runs counter to conventional wisdom to talk about religion and politics over the holidays. He assigns two potential opponents a job to do together to form a bond with the team work. He said we need more experience working together.
Feiler advised talking to kids without looking at them as when in the car and he also advises this for adversaries. He said people quarrel when they take advantage of one another as they take each other for granted. He advised starting with small things to overcome.
