Helpline Relationships: Different parenting styles, clashes with MILs and more

Posted in Feed Play Love.

Mothercraft Chris Minogue is taking some time off, so we’re using it as an opportunity to focus on relationships.

Kirsty Levin is a psychologist with The Parents Village, a group that offer parents support through workshops and individual counselling. A wife and mother of two girls Kirsty understands what it’s like to raise a family, and adds her professional knowledge to help parents overcome challenges they face within their relationships.

In this episode Kirsty tackles:

  • When the agreed-to roles change and the stay-at-home mum needs more help
  • Parenting criticism from a mother-in-law
  • A best friend who doesn’t understand the demands of motherhood
  • Different parenting approaches to discipline
  • When relationships lose intimacy because both parents are tired
