MetadataShow full item record
The need to take care of ourselves before others applies here. Only when we are cared for in a basic way can we successfully care for our spouses and family. Think of this as a derivative of the mantra we hear on every airplane flight: “In case of emergency, place the oxygen mask over your own mouth before you assist others.” ¶ Honest and clear communication is essential so that the proper balance is in place for individuals, couples and their families. Each person’s needs is important and compromises can be made through honest, respectful communication. I conceive of the strategy to plan leisure time in a series of concentric circles: The innermost circle is the individual, then the couple, then the immediate family, and finally the extended family. This can be accomplished in different ways according to the needs of each individual and family. (from Conclusion)
