    Advice on giving advice

    I just read a great artcile about giving advice. Here is the link to the whole thing -> http://shine.yahoo.com/channel/life/the-best-advice-for-giving-advice-2408469/


    “The way advice is given can inadvertently increase the receiver’s resistance to hearing it or acting on it, You want the advisee to come away with good advice, rather than bad feelings about the advisor.”

    Will -- That's a nice piece, and there's no problem with what it says. But it's a copyrighted article, and posting huge chunks of it causes legal problems. Could you work with me on taking that comment down and re-posting just the link?

    OK - good point.

    I left just one sentence and the link. Hopefully that will be OK.

    I think that was a good article. I wonder sometimes why people respond so insensitively to a letter writer. Do they really think calling the LW names or berating their decisions is fruitful? I understand tough love, but some commenters are just overly harsh.

    Thank you for posting that.

    Yup - been watching the interaction in the LL blog. Looks like things are pretty much back to the normal fun. I plan on returning to the fray when I return from my vacation in early December. There have been a few times when it's been almost unbearable to NOT respond to some of the comments.

    Have fun everyone, stay safe and I'll see you all when I get back. (as long as things don't get out of hand again and remain fun here)
