Translated by Rabbi Avraham Greenbaum
You must respect and honor your wives.
How much pain and anguish women suffer through their children. They suffer in pregnancy and childbirth, after which they must endure the pain of raising their children. This is in addition to many other areas in which women suffer very great pain and hardship. You must take this into account and give honor and respect to your wives.
Our Rabbis taught: "Honor your wives in order to be wealthy" ( Bava Metzia 59a) , and they also said, "It is sufficient that they raise our children" ( Yevamot 63a) .
Sichot Haran #264

Why don't you turn your wives into Chassidim?
Siach Sarfey Kodesh 1-14
The usual way is that when a child is stubborn they hit him and afterwards they give in to him. But I say: Don't hit and don't give in.
Siach Sarfey Kodesh 1-91
