         More Information VRP View Of Reality 
VRP: It would be nice if you would do your chores before you ask your mother if you could go play. Green: I would like you to complete the chores on your daily list before you ask your mother if you could go play.
To say that something, "would be nice" is inferring a "should," further implying that to do otherwise would be some version of "not-nice," an inference suggesting a negative evaluation.

The VRP sentence above is an example of the speaker making a simultaneous: 1) Rescue attempt of the mother, and; 2) Persecutor controlling move on the son or daughter.
Saying a Want, clean and Green, and saying when I would like it done, is clear and free of judgment, be that judgment intended or otherwise.
