There are so many important ways we prepare for our children, but our relationship with our spouse or partner is often not one of them. 69% of relationships experience a decline in marital satisfaction over the three years following a new baby. The result is often increased hostility and conflict that extends beyond the couple's relationship and leads to compromised parenting and decreased quality in parent-infant interaction. This in turn unfortunately impacts your children's social, emotional, and cognitive development.
Fortunately, a couple's emotional connection is the root of baby's development and years of research shows us that the interventions and skills will teach you over the course of this package can enhance your relationship satisfaction by teaching you how to strengthen your friendship, increase intimacy, regulate conflict, learn how to co-parent, and how to be a sensitive and responsive parent. Not only will you feel more satisfied in your relationship, you will be improving the well-being of your children, setting them up to be healthy, happy, and well-adjusted little humans.
