Information for this tip came from the New York-Presbyterian Hospital: Rule #3 states "Say exactly what you want the other person to do. Request a small change. Request only one or two changes at one time. Say exactly what behaviors you want to see stopped and those you want to see continued. Ask for something the person can actually do. Don't merely imply that you'd like a change. Don't ask for too big a change. Don't ask for too many changes. Don't ignore the other person's needs. Don't assume that only the other person has to change."
