Why wait until things go really bad until you decide to make things better. Relationships require a lot of skills and knowledge about how to make them work so that everyone is happy. When we are expecting the very happy arrival of a new baby no one wants to think about possible problems or challenges.
However Gottman’s research shows that couples often face a significant decline in marital satisfaction following the birth of a child. Strong couples that once had the ability to manage difference now find that they are struggling to meet the baby’s needs as well as their own plus the couple. Couples find conflict increases and intimacy and emotional disconnection decrease.
No where do we learn effective relationship. However wellness counselling can help provide you very short effective skills to manage known relationship challenges. It is clear that the greatest gift parents can give their child is a loving, stable and happy relationship.
