Welcome back to the New Mom Boss Podcast!
I’ve heard it said that having children will bring you closer to your partner or spouse.
While that’s a nice sentiment, it’s not exactly how it works.
What I have found to be true is that growing a family amplifies what’s already present.
If a marriage is already filled with poor communication and misunderstanding, bringing kids into the mix will not make those problems go away. It will only shine a light on them.
Strengthening your marriage does not happen automatically when you have kids.
Quite the contrary - it takes a lot of work. And to help me flesh out this topic, I’ve brought on Julia Barbaro, a certified life and marriage coach, an author, wife, and a homeschooling mom of six kids.
Julia's passion is to empower couples to strengthen their mind and their communication, overcome obstacles, and seek clarity. Together, she helps them create a life plan for themselves as well as encourages parents to guide their children to adulthood.
In our conversation, we talk about how motherhood impacted her marriage, and some key tips she’s learned for prioritizing her spouse as a new mom. We also touch on how to grow a relationship with our kids and open the door for impactful conversations and gestures.
Some big takeaways are:
