But this image got me thinking about what happens when people involved in a remodel — homeowners, designer, contractor, craftsmen — act like children. Is that not frustrating?
So what kinds of childish behaviors are there?
For inspiration, I looked at the postings on Answerbag.com in response to this question:
What forms of childish behaviors annoy you the most?
Here are some of the responses:
• Bad losers
• Name calling
• Excessive attention-getting behavior
• Throwing fits and tantrums
• Doesn't listen to sound advice
For all our projects, leaving behind childish behaviors and embracing adult behaviors — logical, rational, disciplined, compassionate — will make the experience much less stressful.
