you think you understand your man? Do you think that he is
irresponsible and often forgets to bring the things you tell
him to? Do you think that he is too pre-occupied with his
work that he hardly hears what you say and doesn't seem to
care what you do? Well if your answer is yes then what do
you do. Are you the one who keeps shouting at your husband
for forgetting the appointment with the doctor/school/parents-teachers
meeting etc? Are you the one who nags him day in and day out
for being so busy with his work that you are almost non-existent?
Do you think nagging is the solution to all your problems?
Well let me tell you one fact. Studies have revealed that
men can suffer from hypertension, stress and other psychological
problems because of nagging. You don't want your husband to
turn into a psychological wreck, do you? So read on.
It is a fact that men want to feel needed and cared for. They
like to feel that you want their protection and security.
Therefore you have to keep your cool and get your things done
tactfully. It doesn't mean that they will not do it otherwise
but what is important is that what you ask them to do should
involve love and tenderness. Don't ask them to do anything
in a commanding and authoritative tone. And nag you must not.
You can get your things done in a better way than nagging.
How To Ask Your Man To Do Something
How you ask your man to do something makes all the difference.
Women think that a subtle nuance or slight turn of phrase
will have no effect whatsoever on their hard core macho man.
Well It does! Which is why you should always use "would you"
and "will you" instead of "could you" and "can you".
Always remember these five important rules when asking your
man to do something:
Make sure he is conscious and is listening to you.
Be brief! Limit your nagging harangue to one-hour max but
not more than that.
Reward him for co-operative behaviour. Treat him with his
favourite dish for dinner.
Punish him when he refuses to co-operate. But don't go on
an I-don't-want-to-talk-to-you attitude. It will make matters
Use "would you" or "will you" instead of "you'd better" or
"do as I say and no one will get hurt".
