Yea well mum is always saying how many times have I told you.No. Men do it as well, but women are more commonly seen as the perpetrators of it. The cause of most of it, is the belief that the one nagging knows better than the person they are nagging to do something. And regardless of whether they actually know better or not, people should just speak the truth of what they believe once, and then let the people decide for themselves whether or not to follow the advice. If you keep up the same tirade over and over, you only turn people away from whatever truth there might be in what you are counseling.
Yes, and sometimes they already know, but they want to do it on their time table, not the naggers time table.Yea well mum is always saying how many times have I told you.
Some people call it friendly reminder. At the library we would only ask for books back once if they were getting to be late as a courtesy before they were due, and then after there would be a charge if they were late. And if they didnt pay theyd be in debt to a limit of ten bucks and then it would block the card from borrowing. Seemed to work.
Imagine if we nagged everyone to return their books. Exhausting for the librarian..the only thing I didnt like is if someone else had borrowed the book on your card and didnt return it, even after you reminded them. So I learned not to do that for others. I think with letting people decide for themselves is a good thing.
I dont know how it comes to play with being a christian, I think we ought to encourage, not nag. Encourage is so different from nagging cos nagging implies you already know to do the right thing but you havent done it. Well maybe some people dont know how?
Men typically get grumpier when things (body wise) start not working as well as they used to, but its something we all have to deal with, but we hate not being able to depend on the body that had served us so well when we were younger. But age brings wisdom often, so its a good trade off for those who can see the blessings in a failing body.Spirit is willing but the flesh is weak...
Its ok for men they dont have times of the month....but mum is past menopause. However I did hear there is such a thing as manopause when men get grumpy.
