When your partner doesn’t want kids.

It seems to you that it is right time to have kids. But for some reason your partner is against it and simply doesn’t understand you. Well, it happens. He even doesn’t want to talk about it and always tries to do his best to switch the topic. Many couples face the same problem. And of course your partner has dozen reasons to avoid the conversation. He is sure that you are not ready, you have no time, you have no enough money. In fact those reasons have nothing to do with reality.

Try to understand what are actual reasons your partner doesn’t want to have children. Probably he had family problems when he was a child, maybe he was abused and has no a role model to follow. Talk to him and try to find out what really bothers him at the moment. You never know what actual reasons of his decision are. Try not to be too demanding and impulsive otherwise it may damage your relationship. Your aim is to understand your partner and his position. Probably it might help you to move on.

Falling in love with your therapist.

It seems like I fall in love with my therapist. Actually I’m sure that my feelings are serious. I’m not kidding you. And I have no idea what should I do in this complicated and confusing situation. I started to visit him eight months ago. It was my first experience of visiting a counselor and to tell the truth it was a little bit strange for me. For some period of time I couldn’t reveal my actual feelings and problems. It was challenging for me at the time. He seemed to me to be a bit arrogant and even indifferent. Well, in fact it didn’t surprise me. Anyway I didn’t like him much. I realized that probably he would be able to help me to cope with my problems. That’s why I decided not to give up and continued visiting him. Everything was okay for the first time. At least it seemed to me so. I realized that he was the only one who could help me and support.

Parenting an adopted child

Raising an adopted kid could be uneasy. And if you have decided to adopt a child you should take into account the problems you may face. If you have problems with an adopted child you just can’t refuse him. It is your kid and that’s it. So you should accept and treat an adopted child as your own.

Needless to say that parenting an adopted child by beating him is beyond belief. Let’s see what are possible problems you may face raising an adopted kid.
