About Richard Greenberg
Richard Greenberg is a happily married father of four and the author of “Raising Children That Other People Like to be Around”. A native of Los Angeles, Richard graduated from UCLA with a Bachelor’s degree in English in 1976. Shortly thereafter, he married his childhood sweetheart JoAnn, with whom he continues to happily parent their four children. Richard has always been an analytical sort and keen observer, so after more than thirty years working in the entertainment industry and studying the dynamics of his own family, Richard wrote Raising Children that Other People Like to Be Around. Richard’s book humorously and practically guides parents toward improved communication and a team focus by sharing his very male point of view and offering logical, common-sense guidelines for people creating their own families.

Compliment each other. Look for positives. Address your concerns and accept each others imperfections.

Tips for Engaged Couples or Newlyweds
Tip 1 – Marriage is not 50/50, it’s 90/90. If you accept you are doing more than half, you’ll be much happier than if you’re punching a clock and counting things.
Tip 2 – You are your own family now. Decisions you make with each other are independent of the decisions that you think your parents would be making for you.
Tip 3 [For the Husbands] – If you and your wife have an argument, it’s important that you always have the last word. The argument should always end in “Yes, Dear.”
