Kristen Bell Explained Why She And Dax Shepard "Role Play" Apologising After They Fight In Front Of Their Kids https://t.co/jmifJ8TSWN— BuzzFeed (@BuzzFeed) March 5, 2020
relationship oversharer Bell spoke to the Motherly podcast about their conflict resolution
"We'll come home, we'll be tense with each other, we'll snap at each other in the kitchen — not realising they're witnessing it — we put them to bed, we go into the bedroom, and just privately, we'll say, 'God, I'm sorry I snapped at you, I've had a really tough day.'"
So [Dax] said, let's make a deal that whenever we make up behind closed doors, that we role play the next morning
Every time we're testy with each other, the next morning I'll say, "Good morning, Daddy — I just wanted to say, last night, I had a really long day and I'm sorry that I snapped at you about, you know, not having the dinner that you wanted." And he would say, "Yeah, Mommy, you're right, I had a hard day too, and I'm really sorry." And then we physically kiss and hug."
