Today's Video Lesson—

Complaints are emotional needs that are not being met.

“I can't stand that you never come home after work and have dinner with the kids" is a complaint, but “I feel most loved and I think our kids feel most loved when we have dinner together and spend time together as a family"—well, that's an emotional need that's not being met.

It's much easier to hear your partner when they present an emotional need—rather than a complaint.
