In addition to, the needed parenting tools for positive behavior change that allows them to build a healthy relationship with their children.

When parents have a baby, this matter becomes tiring to them. They need to joint parenting and know its meaning. We support parents with self-care, communication and providing a safe place to talk about the difficulties they face. New parents are always over the moon at the arrival of a newborn baby. However, when it is your first child becoming parents can often be very overwhelming and stressful. You and your partner probably have be com every comfortable with the routine of when it was just the two of you and the arrival of a newborn baby changes everything. It changes your routine and the dynamic of your relationship. No matter how much you are excited, this new addition to your family puts new demands and new pressures on your relationship. Becoming parents causes a new dynamic and type of struggle in the relationship that you have never had before.

HERE ARE SOME OF THE NEW DEMANDS:

SLEEP DEPRIVATION

As you may imagine, sleep deprivation is hard on new parents and can be a source of stress within the relationship. Having a new born baby requires waking up every four hours for breast feeling, a diaper change and making sure our baby is comfortable. Sleep deprivation usually make people feel more irritated or short with one another which may lead to misinterpretations and arguments. Therefore, couples at this stage need to be particularly careful about their communication.

ROLES IN PARENTING

The early stages of having a new family member can be very stressful as both partners begin to adjust to the new demands placed on them.Baby seems to need mama all the time for breast feeding and for comfort. The other partner’s role is to change diapers and provide comfort. In many cases,partner (papa or baba) may begin to feel a little left out and jealous of all the time that baby gets to spend with mama. Either partner may feel too tired or unavailable for the other’s emotional needs which may lead to disconnection.

PARENTING STYLES

Many couples differ on the best way to raise their child and are often surprised about how strongly they feel about the matter. Most couples have differences in parenting styles. These parenting styles are authoritarian(emphasizing obedience), permissive (very few boundaries and guidelines for behaving), and authoritative (which blends a caring tone with structure and consistent limit-setting). Having different parenting style may cause couples to have fights and to feel disconnected and distant.

GOALS

For some couples making a family involves creating family traditions and rituals. Some families enjoy having dinner together, while others do not view this as important. Other families celebrate birthdays,mother’s day and father’s day, while others celebrate religious holidays and ceremonies. Depending on your own family religious or cultural background, you will find that each of you may have a different idea of how you would like to create a family. This is a potential source of conflict when both partners do not have the same values, or disagree about what is an important family function.

FINANCES

Couples may have different ideas on how to spend money on their child. One parent may want to send their child to day care and the other wants to have a live-in nanny. Other issues may surface around whether to have a joint bank account or how the bread winner provides financially to the primary caretaker. Also, differences may arise with two successful high earners in deciding who will go back to work and who will stay home to be with the child. These issues, if not discussed early-on, may cause ongoing tension and conflicts.

Money is one of the most common topics couples argue about. It’s one of the most challenging issues to discuss. Despite having discussed them and seemingly resolved them before, couples never seem to have an easy time talking about money. In fact, talking about money is hard for almost all relationships.

The money topic usually brings up anxiety, frustration, and highlights our differences in saving and spending. No surprise then that when two people with two different perspectives are involved it becomes even more complicated. However, there is one important insight that helps couples move toward financial health and help the way you talk about money forever- the problem may not be money itself, but your values with money or what money represents to each of you. When we realize that money acts as a symbol for certain values and that we all have very different views and feelings about money, it makes it easier to understand our own and our partner’s perspectives on the subject. Understanding our partner regarding what money means to them is one way to move towards financial health.
