Living in close quarters with your whole family all day, every day can take its toll, but there are ways you can reduce the risk of conflict and keep more peace in your home.

Keeping Harmony in the Family During Coronavirus Pandemic

SUNDAY, May 3, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- The coronavirus pandemic has families spending plenty of "quality time" together, but living under the same roof 24 hours a day can tax relationships, an expert in child development says.

Luckily, there are ways to reduce the risk of conflict, he noted.

First, assess family members for resilience, which is "surprising strength in the face of adversity," Krantz said, and encourage those people. For example, a person might show leadership by finding ways to make an ordinary recipe taste better, lightening the mood for everyone, or managing their emotions in a way that sets an example for others, he explained.

"Don't insist that it has to be you. You may not be the person who saves the day here," Krantz said in a university news release.
