Up Close and Personal: Live Streaming with Relationship Expert Elly Taylor.
Most couples expect becoming parents will bring them closer together. Research tells us the opposite is true. A whopping 92% of parents report increased differences and conflict and 67% of parents report declined relationship satisfaction in the first few years of family. Sadly, this is contributing to increased anxiety and depression in 1 in 3 mothers and 1 in 5 dads.
The great news is that parents can learn to anticipate and work through differences and challenges on the emotional rollercoaster of new parenthood to be even more loving, understanding and compassionate partners through this most precious life phase. More supportive relationships between partners also serves as a wraparound protective factor: parents who are happy in their relationship report better bonding with their baby or child, higher self-esteem and more confidence in their parenting.
