Page 138 - Excerpt - Thought process

Many families are managed on the bases of crises, moods, quick fixes, and instant gratification - not on sound principles. Symptoms surface whenever stress and pressure mount: people become cynical, critical, or silent or they start yelling and overreacting. Children who observe these kinds of behavior grow up thinking the only way to solve problems is flight or fight.

(From Stephen R. Covey's The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People)
