Marriage Counseling: From a Better Parent to a Better Husband
This article is about an online counseling case I had; L. said: “Now that my husband is the only one providing income he believes that everything concerning the house and kids is my responsibility.”
She went on to describe a scene similar to a TV show of the 40’s and 50’s, where the father had a job and the mother took care of the house and kids. There is of course nothing wrong with this type of relationship and family setting “if” it’s what both partners desire. As a practical Life Coach, it was apparent however, as L. continued describing her situation, that she was not happy and that it was most definitely not what she wanted. “He gets mad if I leave him for even an hour with both kids awake in the evening or on the weekend. He expects me to take them both to the grocery store rather than letting me go when he is home....even though he would NEVER dream of taking them both with him.”
My recommendation was a structured guidance and counseling program along a 2-3 months period that includes: Attitude change: how do you value and assess each other’s strengths and abilities; life aspirations and challenges; Acquiring the right child rearing practices: hoe each parent can and should react and contribute to the children; Enriching marital communication, relationship, sexuality and mutual emotional growth..

I have no simple one Relationship Advice line to offer, I said, but through Marriage Counseling you both should certainly be able to remedy the situation.
A structured guidance and counseling program along a 2-3 months period would do the job, I informed her.
