Are you helping carrying your spouse’s load? Are you sure you know the load your spouse is carrying?

In marriage you want to be there for each other and help each other, that’s what life partners are for. But for many of us, we don’t know exactly how to do that. We aren’t helping carry our spouse’s load largely because we don’t know how.

We hear consistently that couples are struggling with how to survive the toddler years. Parenting is hard and can be hard on a marriage. Parenting toddlers can feel downright impossible and can be REALLY hard on a marriage. Because toddlers are learning life, and boundaries, and they haven’t learned how to deal with their emotions in a healthy way yet, they can honestly be kind of like tiny tyrants.

In this episode Dr. Kim & Christina speak specifically to those of you in that stage and give you some tips on how to keep your marriage healthy even with a tyrant in your home. They give you tools to tame that tyrant into a sane and emotionally healthy kid. Most importantly, they give you tips for getting your marriage awesome even in this hard season.

One of the things we hear sometimes from spouses, particularly husbands, is that they feel like they lost their spouse when they had children.

It’s common for many spouses to feel second rate to their kids, but also feel like their spouse isn’t even their spouse any more. Too often we drop too much of ourselves for our children.

We know this is going to be a controversial episode but we want to go here because we get so many emails about this issue. We want to share our thoughts and what Dr. Kim learned over the years that he found to be successful in being a great parent but also not losing all of who you are.

In this episode Dr. Kim & Christina discuss how to not lose yourself in parenting.
