He Will Feel you Appreciate His Authority and Leadership When...

  • you tell him you are thankful for his strength and enjoy being able to lean on him at times.
  • you support his self-image as a leader.
  • you never say, "you're responsible but we're still equal, so don't make a decision I don't agree with."
  • you praise his good decisions
  • you are gracious if he makes a bad decision
  • you disagree with him only in private and honor his authority in front of the kids
  • you give your reasons for disagreeing quietly and reasonably, but you never attack his right to lead.
  • you do not play "head games" with him to make him back down and be a "loving peacemaker."
