What a Mom Wants #5
I know for me if Mom and Dad are not happy then it is hard to have a happy home. And that means the kids are not happy which means MOM is not happy! So I believe Mom and Dad have got to put their relationship first. But we all have our moments. Everything is going great then something something small or BIG happens and it is all a mess. Do you ever feel like you do not know what to say to fix things? Or feel like everything you do say makes it worse?
Nancy Dreyfus, a psychotherapist over over 25 years, has written a book for people like you and me! ” Talk To Me Like I’m Someone You Love: Relationship Repair in a Flash” contains “Flash cards for Real Life.” It was created to help couples who may be in a combative or defensive state get back into a calm and kind conversation in minutes. Here are some examples of the pages of flash cards for adults.
The one that I really like is “I feel like a total and complete idiot.” I can not think of anything that would get my husband to stop and listen to me faster than saying that! The lines in this book make you think beyond yourself. As much as I LOVE to say ” I told you so!” or “I was right and you are WRONG!” I know that those lines only make things worse! Talk to me like I’m someone you love is a great way to bring love and calmness back into the equation and take the attention off of me.
This book contains tools that could be used in other areas as well. Maybe a challenging mother / daughter relationship or battles with your children. Again this book helps take the focus off of yourself and unproductive words and helps turn the conversation that works! A conversation that is going somewhere POSITIVE and not in a negative spirial!
Take a minute to check out Nancy ‘s video here where she talks about her book a little more in detail and gives a great visualization!
I am confident this book is one that can help you in your relationships! Every mom (& dads too) should have a copy of Nancy Dreyfus Talk To Me Like I’m Someone You Love “ LOVE is what it is al0l about! And Nancy helps us remember that!
Buy it: Talk to Me Like I’m Someone You Love: Relationship Repair in a Flash from Amazon for $11.53.
