Product Description

Product Description

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.

Book Description

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 other’s 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 don’t 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

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended 25 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Full of sensible, understanding advice and realistic-sounding case histories, this book really helped me a lot. Both my husband and I are in high-stress jobs and the kids' needs seem to suck any remaining sliver of energy from us - homework, football, housework, on and on it goes. It felt like our marriage was dying of neglect. I can't say this book has fixed it but it's helped get us talking - in a non-accusatory way - and we are trying several of the ideas. I can only say thank you to Andrew G Marshall; and recommend you buy this book if your situation is similar to mine.

Bringing up children is hard work and demands a huge commitment but taking time out to focus on your partner and keeping yourself sane is essential. Andrews book gives you permission to stop and step back. It invites you to explore this in a meaningful way. I am a mother who has worked continually alongside having child care responsibilities and responsibilities at home (alongside organsing the social calendar and doing weekend stuff to include trying to fit in the Gym). My guilt over the years has been enormous and I have struggled to balance these three things. My husband has been fortunate to be at home in recent times but he has also found it hard - you kinda feel guilty whichever way you turn. This book helps you to think about your thinking, its big picture stuff alongside being practical. You can delive in to a particular item for help as issues arise. Its a must as far as I am concerned and I am only sorry it wasnt available for us as a family when my daughter was a toddler and our work and home schedules were at their most extreme.
