I have just watched this video about non violent communication and it has blown me away.

I now feel hopeful that all our family's needs can be met. smile

It is 3hrs long, and I was a bit WTF? at first, but I think it is really worth sticking with it.

My friend who has a pet giraffe will love this!! You may have seen the giraffe in Edinburgh!

Yes, I saw the thing about the giraffe in Edinburgh and did wonder if it was related to NVC.

My feeing is that it's not related to NVC, because he talks about doing good things which is a judgement and therefore not part of giraffe language. Unless he was translating it into jackal smile

I have posted this in relationships, but it would probably be useful in almost every section of MN!!
