Q&A: My husband yells at me constantly. What can I do to help him with this?

A: Try getting very quiet when he’s yelling. Don’t say anything in response and let the silence speak to him. If you do that a few times, what happens is when he’s not angry he’ll say, “I noticed you never respond when I tell at you.” You say to him, “Honey, I’m trying to help you understand you don’t have to yell at me. You can say it softly and I’ll hear it even more loudly. You’re teaching him to share his frustration in a calmer way rather than yelling.
