If we are to teach by example, why o why when I get DH a new shirt that i know he positively will love ( and does b/c it's in the laundry weekly) or teens fav ( expensive) chips must I really stand there and say in a sing song voice " ThAnK yOU, mOm/ dEaR!" To have them repeat it???
Positive attention to get a result must only exist in animals lower than us, because men/ up and coming men? Clueless!
My ADHD 80 dog was easier to train! Mom says
" sit-stay" I get thank you treats! I give her my submissive stance or nose touch as a thank you!belly as a thank you! See? SHE understands appreciation!
Boys to men ? Uhhhh until I sing song the appropriate phrase does not come!!!
