  • My dad had a saying....he'd say "I know your listening, but are you HEARING me?" He was so funny. What are you trying to say that he won't listen to?

  • Anything! the weather, our relationship, what he wants for dinner...anything at all!

  • Maybe he will listen when you start to walk...

  • Maybe you need to take a look at your approach. Maybe he's heard it all before. Maybe you come off as nagging and critical, or maybe he has ADD. Unless you guys sit down and discuss this issue, nothing will get solved. Have you asked him for his opinion? Does he feel that there is a problem with communication? Or are you venting and he tunes you out? I definitely DO NOT recommend just "walking" like the PP -- but if you guys can't get on the same page, maybe you should look into some counseling.
