Know your position within your marriage.
Stand your ground when communicating with your husband about things that affect the marriage. Realize that he uses a different language at work, that based on decision-making and task assignments.

If you do not want a dominant authoritarian style in your home, you will have to speak your husband language.
Your position is valuable.
This means that you will have to know your position. Taking care of the house and children, teaching them the things they need to learn is valuable.

Be confident when confronting your husband.
Your value as the wife, give you the right to speak with confidence. Presenting your husband with facts in a logical concise manner will reach him in a way he understands best.

Avoid a display of anger as this, may undermine your ability to get him to listen to you. Approach him in a calm manner with a confident position where he cannot deny the validity of your words. Lovingly express to him that the children benefit by him being home as a role model for them.
Deal with one problem at a time.
Address any particular problem that you wants to. But, it is better to only deal with one problem at a time. This is the simplest and most effective method, when dealing with your husband. If you are keenly aware of your importance, you will be able to have the marriage that you want. Listen and communicate confidently to your husband – you will then get the marriage that you want.
