Ladies, Praise Your Husbands!


I started to listen to your show a few months ago.

My husband and I have been going through a "rough patch". I was listening to you one day and EVERYTHING clicked! You were talking to a wife who was cranky about her husband doing things "wrong" (i.e., not her way) around the house. I am the same way: it MUST be done MY way.

The first night after hearing that call, when my hubby loaded the dishwasher, I simply said, "Thanks Babe!" and sat down with him to watch the football game. I didn't make a snarky comment on why the counter wasn't wiped off or the crumbs weren't swept up. Instead I spent time with my husband. It was fantastic!  My uneducated advice is to let it go, ladies!  Praise your husbands; it goes a loooong way! You can ALWAYS sweep tomorrow!

Thanks Dr. Laura!
