Diplomacy within a familyDiplomacy and diplomatic actions are generally understood in the context of national level leadership or related to discharging of administrative and managerial functions successfully in an organisation. But diplomacy is not having a role so limited. It is present everywhere even in our households. In a family, there are many members like grandparents, parents, children and sometimes dependent sisters, brothers or cousins. In such a situation, different members have different aspirations and expectations from the other members and especially from the head of the family as well as from the housewife. In such circumstances, the members who have the responsibilities of the household and specially who are the earning members have to deal with all the other members in a diplomatic way. Sometimes, the head of the family has to be tough with all others in order to ask them to adhere to the rules and discipline of the house and might also ask everyone to contribute to the family in their own ways. These type of interactions require diplomacy in talking and tackling as none of the members should be hurt by such instructions and directions. The experienced people manage these things well within the periphery of the household and the family progresses ahead in a cordial and united manner. So diplomacy has an important role in maintaining and keeping the family in good shape and also helps in bringing peace and calm in the family atmosphere.
