Learning to Communicate...

The salt principle is a method of gaining and holding a person's attention by arousing curiosity.  It's a way to create a thirst for constructive conversation in which both you and your spouse can learn about each other's needs.  First, identify the need or concern to be discussed, and then identify areas of high interest to the other person--areas you can tap into to pique interest.
