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.
