Kara Hoppe and Stan Tatkin
Do you and your parenting partner struggle post-kids? In this episode I talk to Kara Hoppe, MFT and Stan Tatkin, PsyD about what happens to couples after having children. We discuss the idea of secure functioning and how important it is for partners to make their relationship a priority. We touch on the importance of listening open-heartedly to each other, even when you don’t hold the same views and encourage you to get curious about where your partner is coming from.
