Relationships
Maybe I am over complicating the issues.

Everybody throughout their whole life is involved in different kinds of relationships. However, that is one aspect of life for which no one gets any training. How do people become good at relationships?

I have two teenage children –  how can I teach them to be good at relationships? Is there a course or a book that you can suggest? I just feel that relationship skills are not something that will necessarily come natural to all people. It surely did not come natural to me –  that is why I am divorced!

Some seem to have a natural talent, most of us learn by trial and error. Maybe the best way to help your children learn to be good in relationships, is to demonstrate it in your own relationships, with them and with others. And encourage them to form a range of friendships and social relationships
