<p>As I mentioned in my PaP post I am struggling with effective communication too. The only tool I know and need to use is: I Statements.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Here is a link with good examples and instructions: <a href="http://www.humanpotentialcenter.org/Articles/IStatements.html" target="_blank">http://www.humanpotentialcenter.org/Articles/IStatements.html</a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>If I come across more ideas, I will post them.</p>

I second this book, it is really great. To me, the biggest piece that I took home from this book is that only YOU are responsible for your own feelings. This really helps me to take ownership of what I'm feeling, and figure out how to ask for help or change. Also, he talks about how to make a request that your partner is more likely to be receptive to and possibly follow. My DH and I both read this book as part of a job that we both had at our university, and it has really helped us tremendously in our relationship over the past 9 years.</p>
