Conference Call 4-8-11

After her brother’s wedding Nicholeen shares a nugget of wisdom “Receiving your Spouse”.  She discusses the importance of receiving and improving your relationship with your spouse, gives an assessment, and discusses the 3 Types of Communication.

Questions:

  • My husband thinks I am too much of a softy and that kids need more aggressive measures than just talking about it. So do I go his way or make him come my way?
  • My children are 10, 12, and14 year olds but they act like 3 year olds.  The feeling in the house is total contention there's been fighting, squabbling, teasing, sibling rivalry, they are being destructive.  My goal to stay calm.  What do I do? 
  • Talking helps me understand my thoughts. What do I do when there is something I need to talk concerning my spouse? I know you mentioned that we shouldn't talk behind our spouses back?
  • We are trying to implement things in your book.  I have older kids who don’t care for the changes.  My husband says we need to get back to core and back to the relationships with them.  How do you suggest we start implementing Self-Government?
