Make Your Partner Feel Needed

No need to act like a damsel in distress, but keep in mind that men respond well when they feel indispensable. Instead of saying, “I’d really appreciate if you helped pack the kids’ lunch,” or “Why can’t you remember to load the dishwasher after the kids eat?” Dr. Klagsbrun suggests this approach: "I know sometimes you forget to load the dishwasher because you're exhausted after a long day, but it would a huge help to me to wake up to clean dishes. Mornings can be so hard for me, so that’s one thing you could do to give me a much-needed hand." Or try, “I’d love your help because I’m exhausted. It would be wonderful if you could please bathe the baby.”
