I knew my nagging wasn’t working particularly well, but figured if I stopped, hubby would never do a darn thing around the house.
If anything, more work got done. I replaced nagging with: wordless hints (like leaving a new lightglobe out on the counter); using just one word (saying “Milk!” instead of talking on and on); not insisting that something be done on my schedule; and, most effective of all, doing it myself.
In the end, I got a big surprise. Happiness from not nagging.
