Above all reason, that is why men prioritized his office or job rather than his promise to company his wife for dinner or shopping, or forgot to pick children up at school, etc. Men did that because he thoughts that as the head of family, his job is major income for his family.

Job is his men first priority. That’s why men so confused if his couple angry with him. This is classical problem in a marriage and children because kids complain about their father who seldom keeps his promise to accompany them at weekend. So, because men mostly orthodox about their job, you and kids should play many trick and be smart to make him joint family activities.

Negative appreciation from his couple will directly made losing his self-esteem and self-confidence. Even though his couple said a fair critical, but many times men feel it as incapable of himself.

Be honest with your critical, but said it wisely. It is better that firstly you appreciate it, emphasize the part you like, then you can continue to explain which part that maybe need to do more to make it good or excellence. I gave you a clue: if you know how to motivate your little boy when he fail in something, if you know how to motivate them with appreciation and make your little boy become enthusiastic again, then you know how to deal with your husband or your couple. Your husband sometimes is a big boy in your home and you are needed to play mother role for him. Remember, the most deadly critical for men is comes from wife, mother, and sister (women). Be smart with your positive feedback for your couple!
