"Practice, with a friend or family member, assertive ways to ask for the things... Remember... to stand or sit up straight, to look at the other person, to talk in a normal (not whining or shouting) voice, and to be honest and direct. It's OK to ask for what you want. (But don't expect to always get it)."
