Married ... with ritual

December 07, 2016 Comments Joanne Isaac

In November my husband and I ‘celebrated’ our 19th year of marriage. Our anniversary happened to fall on a Tuesday night and our three kids were, of course, in the house. We managed a drink and a brief conversation alone by the pool before we were swallowed whole by the normal everyday demands of family life.

For this busy mum, 'something's gotta give'

December 01, 2016 Comments Tanya Russell

Q As a parent of three children I feel I have lost who I am.  I have put so much effort into what I perceived as being a great parent. I have always put my kids first and now they rule our house.  I have done this out of love but now feel stuck and don’t know how to change this.  My relationship with my husband is strained because I have given everything, including all my time and attention, to my children, believing I had to do this to meet their needs. But I have done this at the expense of my relationship and now have nothing left in my tank to give him.  How do I reclaim ‘me’?  I feel like I am just ‘surviving’ − trying to cope as a mother of three, work and run a household.   I am in a rut and don’t know how to get out.
