Ways to stroke your spouses’ ego

How well do you build up your spouses’ self-esteem?

Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott, have written a great book called "The Love List." In it, they outline some powerful ideas to make your spouse feel special.

For instance, try looking for ways to praise your husband or wife. It doesn't have to be a big deal, just a simple word of encouragement. Tell them, "You look great today," or "I really appreciate what a great Mum you are."

When you're with friends, make a point of bringing up one of your spouse's good qualities. Say something like, "Dave is an amazing cook. You should try his lasagna." You'll be surprised how many brownie points you score with a simple compliment.

When you’re alone, don't forget to tell your spouse how much you love them. All of us need to know that we're loved and appreciated. Everyone likes to be courted, even if they've been married for twenty years.
