  • A soft touch
  • Lowering your volume
  • Quiet time
  • Being empathetic
  • Showing concern
  • Being agreeable
  • Positive body language
  • Openness
  • Warmth
  • How is the tone of voice?
  • Is there respect and courtesy in the air?
  • Does a person seem willing to talk about the difficult issues?
  • Can you feel the warmth?
  • Make sure other needs are being met by both parties. A lack of one thing or too little of another thing matters quite a lot sometimes.
  • Make efforts not to fight over little things. Too many small skirmishes end up in big wars.
  • Hold hands and give attention.
