One of the subjects of family psychology is conflict. Since the family is a fairly complex system, especially if the family is large and consists of people of different generations, taking into account human nature, it is obvious that there is no way to do without conflicts in it. Family conflicts are common, but they can occur in different ways, and depending on the behavior of the people involved in them, the same conflicts lead to different consequences. Unfortunately, most people are not properly prepared for such conflicts. We usually behave as our parents did in similar situations, whose family life we observed as a child, which is fundamentally wrong. And not only because our own life situations may simply be similar to those in which our parents were, but not identical in any way, but also because many parents can not set the right example of behavior in conflict situations for their children. Therefore, many people do not know how to behave correctly in a particular conflict situation, but often think that they do. Well, if people at least turn to psychologists for help to resolve such conflicts, then they have the opportunity to avoid negative consequences from them. But some of them make a decision about what to do in the event of a conflict, being fully confident in their rightness, before contacting a specialist, or do not consider it necessary to contact someone at all. It is obvious that without a positive experience of solving family conflicts, such people only harm their lives, because their decisions often turn out to be wrong, especially in the long term.
Family psychology can not only teach people to behave correctly in a conflict situation in the family, but it also teaches how to prevent such conflicts. Suffice it to say that the very readiness for family conflicts significantly reduces their severity. When a person understands, even before creating a family and before the conflict in it, what possible conflict situations he will face with a very high degree of probability, then morally he is more or less ready for them. Therefore, it will not be a disaster for him if something suddenly goes wrong in his family, if there are at least unwanted, but not unexpected problems. He will already have at least a rough idea of what to do and how to resolve the conflict. So if you do not want to seek help from psychologists, for one reason or another – become psychologists for yourself and your family, by studying family psychology. You never know what disagreements can arise in a family, especially in a young one, not hardened by difficulties and trials. You need to be prepared for all this in advance, not flattering yourself with the hope that everything will be different in your family, that you will never have any problems, scandals, conflicts, disagreements. In life, everything happens, and I will even say so, everything must happen – both good and bad. So you need to be prepared for everything, including family conflicts. Family psychology, if you study it carefully, will prepare you for them.
