My husband likes to be praised for things all of the time when I never get any. At all. Ever. How should I deal with this? I think he is so immature sometimes. I was thinking about making him one of those gold star charts like the ones for kids. Every day that he does something that he feels proud of, I should give him a gold star. What do you think?
Lol sounds like my df and just about every guy I know lol
I ignore it and when he tells me he did something I just say great where's my award for the crap I do all the time. And he usually walks away and never mentions it again. But it's a good way to make him shut up
My hubby does the same thing, I don't have to deal with it much cuz he does close to nothing around the house in order for him to mention it lol. But when he does I just say "thanks babe, I appreciate it" and that settles it.
He may not understand, or he may not be able to tell you in the way he wants how good of a job you're doing. My husband told me that the other day...that I do so much, he just doesn't know how to tell me.
It may also be your husbands "love language" . He needs praise and words of encouragement to fill up his cup and make him feel loved.
