or “I Love You More”

39. Say “I need to stay quiet (or step away) for a few minutes so I don’t say anything harsh and hurt you in a moment of anger” 
40. Say “Aaaargh, if I didn’t love you so much, I’d probably jump up and down and rip the place apart like the Hulk since I’m sure feeling like one right now” 
41. Say “I love you, but I need you to leave me alone for a moment. Can you do that for me please?” 
42. Say “I’m so annoyed and I can see you are upset too. Do you think we can hug it out of each other?” 
43. Say “Can we just agree to disagree about this please? I don’t want to fight with you” 
44. Say “Let’s take a few moments to calm down and then discuss this again. I love you too much to let this turn into an ugly fight” 
45. Say “Aaaargh, I don’t like the direction this is taking. I love you and don’t want to go there. Reset?” 
46. Sigh, sit down and invite them to come cuddle up with you. 

When they are frustrated

48. Put a hand on the shoulder or gently rub circles on the back
