  • make sure everyone knows the topics of politics and religion are completely and totally off limits - that's usually what started fights in my family before that rule! Also, if there are any other topics that will start arguments, make them off-limits. We also played a game where everyone had to write something nice down about someone else then we drew the pieces of paper out of a hat and read them aloud.
