Picture this scene: two brothers in their backyard throwing a baseball back and forth. They are both enjoying themselves and laughing together. All of a sudden, one of the boys decides to throw a fastball and it lands in his brother's baseball glove with a loud 'WHACK!' What do you think happens next? In this video, Dr. Tim Muehlhoff shares this scenario and how it can teach us about communication patterns. Is the analogy he uses helpful?
