Fed up with the Silent Treatment!

July 13, 2018



 We have all experienced the "silent treatment" once in a while, but when it happens frequently it becomes a problem.


Here are some hints and tips on how to manage the situation easily.


1. Talk to your partner in a calm and gentle manner.


2.  Let them know that you have hurt them.


3.  Tell them you care about being a good wife, husband, partner


4.  Explain to them that you care about the relationship.


5.  Then distract yourself with an activity and create distance, ensuring you are in a ;neutral position.


6.  Understand that there is a legitimate reason for being hurt.


7.  When things have returned to a calmer place approach the subject with a view to negotiating a compromise for the future.
