Sr & Jr
As I began to watch NCIS, I looked for conflict in the crime scenes and not with the people behind the scenes. Only to find out that the interpersonal conflict was between a father and son. Tony Dinozzio dad comes to visit and does not really tell his son Tony why he is coming to visit. But his dad has his own plan and is going to try and do whatever he wants. In turn, making ton have to learn how to speak and communicate with his dad on a new level.

He then goes on to say some mean things to his dad. Creating more of a rift in their relationship thus so far.

(Bevan & Sole 2014). Compromising only will work for so long and then the problem will fester back up.
Fourth, Tony starts to figure out that he has to…
