When things seem to get really bad!
Sometimes things seem to get so bad that it seems nothing will ever work. These times make it most difficult to rely on the healthy self care and healthy relationship practices that we have talked about over and over again. These times are "Game Time" This is when is crucial to practice self care, healthy relationship, and a reliance on the marriage. These are the times that boundaries get lost out of fear, too much focus gets placed on one child, and parenting the issues of one child overshadows work, sleep, social life, and the rest of the family. It will feel unnatural and it will be difficult but maintain boundaries and balance.
