One of the biggest fears that I hear from most of my clients partners is “I don’t want to say something stupid!” and honestly, you probably will say something stupid.

My husband is NOT good at positive affirmations. He does not know how to share his feelings and he is pretty much the worst at amping up a situation. I'm actually pretty sure he doesn't even know what positive affirmations are!
If you shook your head in agreement to any of these statements in regards to your partner, keep reading. I want to help your partner get better at sharing words of affirmation, especially as a new dad.
