What are some ways to prepare your relationship for a child?
Having a baby can put even the most stable of relationships to the test. Here are some ways to prepare for a child so that your relationship can withstand the major changes you will be making:
1. Respect each other’s differences: You and your partner grew up differently and have read different baby books in preparation for your future child. It’s time to acknowledge that your parenting techniques are going to vary and that you will not always agree. That way, every disagreement will not turn into a break up.
2. Put the already existing problems to rest: If you and your partner were fighting pre-baby, adding a child to the equation will not solve anything. Fix, forgive and talk out any major problems you are having so that you don’t carry built up anger on top of new angers.
3. Don’t expect perfection: Parenting can be both the most beautiful and the scariest of jobs. Support each other’s flaws, because it’s a learning process.
