How To Avoid Nagging

While it’s easy to resort to, nagging is not the easiest way to get your partner’s help…


Typically we want a bit of more support than is being provided by our partners – but how can we get them to do more without having to hassle? Listed here are some suggestions for keeping your own home a nag-free zone.


Learn to speak up
You can begin by letting your partner into your world, as many men do not know or understand what it’s really like. Share that you are feeling overwhelmed or stressed and also you may find your fella comes up with ideas you hadn’t even thought of. Frame it as a joint problem: “How can we get all this accomplished?” If he does not respond as you would like, let him know you’d really appreciate him helping more. Being more hands-on is nice for his kids as well as for you.


It is also essential to work out whether or not your style of communicating has truly been contributing to the situation. The nagging style of communicating could be an easy behavior to fall into, however it teaches a partner to become desensitised. It’s easy to repeat ourselves once we’re frustrated, tired or impatient – and sometimes we’re so sleep deprived we have forgotten we’ve already said something! But even when it isn’t intentional, our attempts to get heard could sound like nagging to our partner and, notably if he had a parent who spoke in the same manner he’ll at some level switch off until a particular tone of voice triggers him into action. We could get stuff completed, however it might be done more slowly next time.


Turn negatives into positives
Also, if our requests are sometimes accompanied by the word ‘you’ and followed up with accusatory absolutes similar to ‘never’, ‘always’ or ‘should’, we’re even much less prone to get a positive response. ‘You’ can come across as judgmental, controlling and/or domineering and is more likely to trigger a partner to become defensive or to shut down.
Either way, we won’t get heard and stuff will not get done.


After which, once we’re feeling unsupported or even hurt, it is easy to become critical. However criticism can cut deep and slaughter self-esteem, significantly in case your partner grew up in a family where it was used as a tool of discipline. Even as adults, we’ll withdraw or become angry to protect ourselves. If this seems like your partner, it’s an opportunity to break a negative parenting cycle and ensure your own kids don’t get to hear it.


Focus on the future
Instead of probably being part of the issue, be a part of the solution. Know that tone of voice, body language, gestures and facial expressions communicate volumes, so keep them positive. Recounting the last 27 times your partner did something wrong is not going to encourage him to do something ‘right’ next time. Rather than saying something like, “You’re hopeless – you forget to buy the milk! I can not trust you to do anything,” and inviting more of what you don’t want, ask for what you do.


Try something along the lines of: “We’re out of milk – could you stop and get it on your way home, please? That’d be great.” Your partner is more likely to remember this time and be proactive the next rather than by accident (on purpose) forget out of resentment. Communicating our needs can really feel awkward at first, so it takes commitment to see it through, however the benefits will probably be far reaching, for all of you.
