Couple Communication: It’s Not What You Say, It’s How You Say It! by Shel Franco
If you have kids in the house, smart mouths and harsh tones are inevitable, and yet the way you talk to the people you love has a profound effect on them – your husband included. Are you talking TO him or AT him? There’s a difference. Pay attention the next time he walks into the room.
- How do you behave?
- Do you make a conscious effort to be happy to see him?
- Does your voice reflect that?
A wise person once said that the only person you can change is yourself. It’s true. Best of all, your behavior is contagious.
