Lockdown or quarantining has a way of magnifying the frustrations...er...differences between family members, doesn't it? Some of us are talkers. Others just want quiet. Some want a family game night. Others a solo Netflix binge. And some are knocking out to-do lists, while others are FaceTiming with friends. Why are people who live in the same house - maybe even with the same genetics- so different? Kathleen Edelman would say it's our temperament. And while we're all at home during these days, our temperaments are on FULL display.
