In Happily Married With Kids, Carol goes through many techniques for real marriages. There are the 5 stages of marriage, normal marriages-real problems, discussion on vacations and how to develop a plan with or without baby in tow. I really enjoyed the section on Living Together Happily During Tough Economic Times.Read more ›
Dr. Carol Lindquist, a therapist with thirty years of experience, strives to bridge the gaps between the husband and wife. Her book, Happily Married With Kids: It's Not a Fairy Tale gives couples the help they need. She guides couples to talk to each other, learn from each other, and keep their intimacy going in order to help their marriages grow.
She brings awareness that while having children is a blessing, it can also be taxing on the marriage. This is not the child's fault but rather how the adults handle the situations. Do they handle them together or do they try to do them alone without working as a team? To make a marriage work, communication needs to be open, listening needs to be instilled, and appreciation for each other should be an every day occurrence.
If your marriage on the outside seems perfect, but inside you know it needs help, don't shy away from asking for it. If you wait too long, it may be too late.
I was so glad to have the chance to review Happily Married With Kids It's not a fairy Tale, because now I feel like we really have a connection. I don't feel were doomed to have nothing to talk about and will just grow apart. I can say I am a happily married women and more in love with my husband then I was before. Our relationship has improved because of what I learned in this book.
Would I buy this book? yes
Would I recommend this book to any couple with children? Yes it is a great read. Overall I am so glad to have read this book and will be telling all my friends.
Topics discussed include dealing with sleep deprivation and new baby demands, sharing the work load of parenting and household chores, dealing with anger, setting goals, family vacations, holidays, and even surviving an affair. Dr. Lindquist provides bullet points of advice for dealing with each issue. Her advice on how to communicate respectfully is excellent and can be applied to any relationship.
Happily Married With Kids is a the perfect combination of advice and humor that will help couples navigate the ups and downs of parenthood while maintaining a loving relationship. I highly recommend it.
