Recently, one of our acquaintances revealed to my husband that he's been in a very unhappy marriage & that he doesn't know how much longer they can continue on the road they are going. This particular couple have been married for 20 years. They raised a daughter & now that she's an adult, they feel like there is this big hole in their union & they don't have much in common anymore.

One of the things I have deliberately decided to improve on is communication with my children. My 8 year old daughter often used to tell me, ‘Mum you’re not listening’ and this went on for a while until I made a decision to change it.

The most precious gift you've ever received is… your child. Along with this priceless gift, you've also received your most all-encompassing task of raising your child.
