How to resolve family arguments

Family arguments happen all the time, particularly around holidays. Here are ways to resolve them in a way that suits everyone.


  1. Jim Flowers

    What a lovely letter Al, Mrs DadNetwork aka Jen really does know how to make a good post… maybe the beginning on her own blog ;-)

    • Al Ferguson

      I know – she’ll do me out of business I think!

  2. Misunderstood Mummy

    This is beautiful! Such a lovely post, and a lovely picture of u both. Mrs DadNetwork should definitely start her own blog :) xx

    • Al Ferguson

      Thank you. I know! She very much prefers to be behind the scenes although I’m working on it :)

  3. Tommy

    Such a beautiful loving letter :)

    • Al Ferguson

      Thanks Tommy, I’ve got a goodun!

    • Al Ferguson

      Thank you! And you’re welcome.

    • Al Ferguson

      I know, Im very lucky :)

  4. Mike Smith

    Well Al, I used to not like you, but after reading this letter I think you might be a pretty good guy after all. :) Only kidding, I’ve always thought you were a solid guy. I’m glad your wife can back me up on this. Thanks for hosting #BigFatLinky

    • Al Ferguson

      Ha! She’s biased…I’m actually pretty annoying!

  5. John Adams

    Delighted to meet the entirte family the other day. What a lovely letter. It is important for couples not to take their other halfs for granted. Think this letter makes that crystal clear. #BigFatLinky

    • Al Ferguson

      Great to meet you too. Totally agree

    • Al Ferguson

      Thank you Alexandra. Im a very lucky man!

  6. Ali @ Mum in a nutshell

    That made me well up! So beautiful and from the heart. I only write shopping lists for my husband and unfortunately, if I wrote something like this he’d wonder what I was after. Thanks for sharing and I think Mrs Dad should have a regular guest post to show us life behind the scenes a little more often. Popping over from the big fat linky

    • Al Ferguson

      I think she should write regularly too… But then TheDadsNet would become the dad wife network!

    • Al Ferguson

      Thank you for joining us!

  7. Papa Tont

    Wow, what a lovely letter. You need to print this and the next time Jen gets angry or frustrated with you, just hand it to her and take 2 steps back lol.

    • Al Ferguson

      Think I might print off a few copies and have them loaded in my pockets. (She’s frustrated with me a lot too!) lol!

  8. Louise

    Oh what a beautiful letter and how lovely of Mrs DadNetwork to surprise you with it.

    • Al Ferguson

      She pretty wonderful like that! Thanks Louise :)

  9. Dawn of the Dad

    Wow! That’s awesome. You’s the Daddy!

    I asked my wife if she’d like to contribute a post for my blog, with a little trepidation, but as yet I’ve not seen anything.

  10. Adrian

    What a find! Thank goodness it wasn’t a letter complaining about how you never put away your socks and leave the cap off the toothpaste! :) Here’s to true love and many years of happiness for you all.

    • Al Ferguson

      I did get that letter too. Just didn’t post it ;)

  11. Sarah Howe

    What a lovely letter and you seem so happy. Definitely something to pick up and re-read when having a bad day. It’s great to appreciate how lucky you are sometimes. xx #bigfatlinky

    • Al Ferguson

      I’m the real lucky one!

    • Al Ferguson

      I do read it over and over! Thanks for your comment

  12. Loz

    How lovely…I’m a very lucky wife and Mummy too, like Jen, I have plenty to be grateful for! I love seeing couples who work hard for each other as well as their little ones :) #bigfatlinky

    • Al Ferguson

      Thanks for linking up. :)

  13. Helena Clarke

    Lovely thoughts. It’s good to take time to tell each other how much you are appreciated when life seems like one mad rush!

    • Al Ferguson

      Thanks so much for your comment. Totally agree and I certainly appreciate my wife!

  14. International Elf Service

    Oh my, what a lovely letter! How wonderful to be so openly appreciated like that. I think we should all write more letters – they’re such uplifting things to receive. Emily x

    • Al Ferguson

      I agree with you emily, I think a good old letter is much neglected! My wife is very good at showing appreciation. I learn a lot from her :)

    • Al Ferguson

      I am glad to hear you are blessed too! Prob best – you women don’t want to make our heads too big!! I feel just as fortunate. She is my world :)

  15. Urban Mumble

    Is this genuine or sales speech? :D Sounds too good to be true! They say feeling grateful and counting your blessings is the key for happiness. It’s so important to remind ourselves for what we have. Far too often we get cought up thinking about all the things we don’t have and forget about all the good things we have.

    • Al Ferguson

      Im proud to say its genuine. I completely agree, it is so important to remind yourselves of all the good. Thank you for your comment :)

  16. Jade Wilson

    Well doesn’t she sound like an absolute sweetheart! You’re a lucky bloke.. most of us just like to nag haha.

    I like doing things like this for my OH too really.. he loves a post it note!


    • Al Ferguson

      Im very lucky Jade :)

  17. Anna busby

    What a fantastic letter so lovely !

  18. El and Baby A

    This is so lovely! If I said anything this nice to tho OH he would be checking the credit card statement haha :)

    • Al Ferguson
