My show is called "Relationships Matter": Whether it's your child, spouse, your co-worker or the person behind the counter at the dry cleaners, how you interact with others is what makes up the fabric of your day. Coping, cajoling, conceding or just standing your ground could all be invoked over the course of an hour. How you respond can either make or break your day. On Relationships Matter, we we will peel the onion, helping you to understand your interactions with others so that you can create meaningful communications with the people in your life. Join Dr. Annie and expert guests for a deeper understanding of your relationships, how to make them better and most importantly how to make them matter.
