Politics Worse Than Ants At Family Picnics

Because it's open season on the presidential election and almost the end of summer vacation, inflammatory rhetoric and family barbecues are both on "sizzle." Without careful monitoring by an attentive host, these can end in a conflagration. You have to learn precisely how to gauge temperatures and when to put a lid on it.

It's also true for the grill.

And unless every member of your family drinks directly from the same candidate's Kool Aid, you're going to witness a political argument in your household.

Ready to host a potentially heated family picnic?? I suggest you take the following quiz to determine your Political Host Profile.
