Show 71 – Couples: Staying connected through parenthood

Just about every parent can attest to the challenge of loving and caring for children while staying in love with their spouses too. Nicole Barrette, a mother of three young children, ages 6 and 4 years, and 8 months, talks about that with Wendy McDonnell, the host of Family Matters Radio.


If this is a struggle for you too, you are not alone.


We explore the underlying needs that are speaking through the stories, observations, thoughts and feelings that Nicole shares. Wendy tries her best at empathic listening to uncover those needs. By shedding some light on what’s important to Nicole, we freed up energy and options that were out of Nicole’s reach before this show so that those needs and values can be supported by concrete actions. The strategies that came up may spark some ideas for you. That’s why we believe sharing our stories is so valuable for all parents.


This show ran live on Sunday, September 11, 2011. Neither Nicole nor Wendy knew where the conversation would lead them until it was over. Please join us and see what happens.


Aired live: Sunday, September 11th, 2011 0800-0900 Eastern Standard Time on CFRU 93.3 FM, Guelph, Ontario, Canada
