November 7, 2011Parents Fighting in Front of the Kids
I wanted to thank you for the advise you gave our son who was brave enough to call your show and ask how he could deal with his parents fighting... sometimes in from of him and his siblings. I am embarrassed to say that was me and my husband, but proud to say that was our son.
He posed a question to me which prompted me to take a good look at how I was treating my husband. "Is this how two people who love each other treat each other?" I didn't like the image I had been presenting. Then I read your books, "10 Stupid Things Couples do to Mess up Their Relationship," and the "Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands." wow...
I made a list of things I am grateful for and my husband is now at the top, followed by our children. I read that list every morning as a reminder and my life has become more simple and more enjoyable.
"Care for them like a loving wife and mom. Love them all, and treat each moment as if it were the best and the last" is my new motto.
Thank you Dr. Laura.
Wife to a Really Great Guy, and, Mom of a Really Smart Kid
