Attempt To Educate Instead Of Belittle

As the old saying goes, “you catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.” After you’ve called out your loved one’s problematic behavior, use it as an opportunity to educate them instead of belittling them.

Maybe they don’t understand what about their behavior is problematic or why you called it out. If this is the case, calmly explain to them why you took issue with it and open up the floor for a mature discussion. Who knows, you may be able to make them see things from your point of view.
