From novels to non-fiction, there has never been more interest in parenting. It seems that somehow, modern parenting has become about always putting your child’s needs first, however inconsequential and no matter what the cost. The price we are paying as parents is losing our identity, forgetting about our partner’s needs and putting them last on our list of priorities. This is resulting in marriage breakdown and unhappy, insecure children with poor relationship role models. This practical self-help book is about putting your partner first, and not losing sight of your own needs when you become a parent. By focusing on your relationship and making your partner a priority, you will create a secure, caring environment in which to bring up your children. The result is a strong marriage, secure children and a happy family.
The kids are happy, but how are things really between you and your partner? In modern parenting, the established wisdom is that you should prioritize the needs of your children above all else. But relationship therapist Andrew G. Marshall argues that couples who tirelessly put their children first are not only sacrificing each others needs and desires, but also increasing the chance of marital breakdown and creating unhappy, insecure kids. I Love You But You Always Put Me Last is about balancing your priorities so you dont lose sight of your marriage when you become a parent. Based on twenty-five years of counselling experience, this book will help you: Maintain intimacy and strengthen your bond of love Work as a team and avoid negative parenting patterns Provide good relationship role models for your children Create a strong marriage, confident children and a happy family
