How do you decide if it is the right time to impose 'tough love' upon a family member, friend,


co-worker, or anyone? Tough love is defined as harsh or stern treatment of the individual in order to correct a serious situation. Most people believe that 'love' of the person must be involved. But, with so many different definitions for love being used today, do you think this would apply in most cases where the intent is to correct a serious situation concerning the individual? Have you used 'tough love' practice to correct a situation? Do you believe that it should be used by others?

    Individual responsibility includes assisting those who have fallen even if it means having them get mad at you. If you are you willing to call the law when a friend has committed a crime - you are assisting them as much as you can through tough love.

    You are correct. I wish more people understood this so we would have more correction and less corruption.
