This question assumes that we actually think about entering an argument before we find ourselves already in it. But I thought if we talk about it, we just might put a yield sign in our brains that will help us think the next time we see an argument coming.

Much of our conversation focused on understanding the purpose of the argument. Is it about being right? Winning? Persuasion? Might you ruin the relationship?

And of course, we have to ask the next question - what do you do when you realize you're in an argument that isn't worth it?

My panelists James Lee, Valerie Nielsen, Brandon Mahoney and Emily Rentas, LMHC all shared some great life experience insight into how they manage arguments in their lives.

Do you agree with them or do you have a tried-and-true method you use to make sure you only argue when there is value in it?
