    How To Train A Husband

    A new book says you should coach him like you would an animal; ignore negative habits and reward positive ones.

    Try these techniques below at home.
    • Reward positive behavior: If your mate picks up just one dirty sock without being asked, give lots of praise. Or a tasty fish.
    • Ignore negatives: Don ' t nag about the rest of the filthy laundry still piled on the floor. Trainers call this Least Reinforcing Scenario.
    • Don't take it personally: Laundry is just laundry, not a symbol for how much your spouse loves you or values your marriage.

    I'm good. I don't like fish.

    Re: How To Train A Husband

    I will be the first to admit, my incredibly loving, lovely and talented wife of nearly 20 years, has effectively trained me. While I'm not perfect, I pick up after myself, give back rubs without her asking for it, often cook meals, and strive to be a better husband and father every day.

    The thing is, I'm a lot happier with myself, now that I've been "trained". Frankly, when she took me on as a "project", I was a slob, and I don't think I could stand going back to my old ways.

    And I've found that I have a penchant for house-work, and enjoy doing laundry, cleaning up and have a real passion for cooking. To the point where my wife and kids really, really like those meals where I am available to cook.

    Our relationship is much more of a "team" effort and other, more "ahem" personal benefits have accrued because of my "training".
