My husband is a neat and tidy sort of a person.  There was a time when our family was living out of laundry baskets instead of closets and drawers, because I just wasn’t able to stay on top of the laundry like I would have liked to. Spencer suggested the topic of having a set time for the laundry to be done and put away.  I didn’t make any comments, because I didn’t want to get involved in his problem solving. Figuring out what someone wants is the first step for helping them have ownership of their thoughts and actions.  Problem solving in relationships requires discerning what the person really wants in order to see what is needed  to inspire change in the person.
