It's time to recognise the "I'll be happy when..." syndrome!...
Looking forward to chatting about celebrity men [Tony Blackburn was in the press yesterday] who talk about their conquests with Mike Parr on BBC radio Tees at 1050 this morning... don't they realise quality is always better than quantity?
Are you a couple that has argued over having children? There are a couple key reasons why children become an issue - one of you wants them and the other doesn't. Or one of you wants more and the other doesn't. On my weekly Love Clinic on iVillage UK I've tackled one woman's dilemma about this... she and her husband have two sons – she would love another child and he wants a vasectomy.
You might wonder why he just doesn't have a third? Well he didn't want any children in the first place and gave in to her wishes. Of course he loves his children now but I have strong feelings that he is in the right.
TODAY’S TIP: whether to have children or not is one of the real deal breakers for couples. It's how you approach this difficult situation that can make all the difference and see you through.
Yelling and screaming isn't the way! Calm discussion will help you find out, e.g., why that person doesn't want any children. It might be they fear they'll never be a good parent. Or they fear for your relationship if children take up all your time. Or it could be a dozen other reasons.
Keep calm and get to the bottom of your differences and who knows where it might lead.
Fingers crossed you work it out, Pamx
My new book The Emotional Eater's Diet is published in the UK on May 15 - I’m very excited as I hope emotional eaters - women or men will find it helpful. Each year 2/3s of people start a diet and 20% start a new diet each month. Yet 95% of diets aren’t successful.
I firmly believe that emotional eating to soothe difficult feelings is the culprit behind most of this failure. My book has a huge range of practical tips/strategies to help understand your emotions and manage your appetite. There are mini-quizes and real case studies.
It’s available to preorder on Amazon. Please remember that food can fuel your energy needs but not your emotional needs. Take care!
