Your marriage will be put to the test when you and your spouse are trying desperately to start a family — your relationship will require even more effort and tender loving care.Even the most solid union may not survive the strain of lost intimacy, dealing with the shame and anguish associated with being infertile, as well as the steep financial burden of getting fertility treatment.Geraldine Tan, a principal psychologist at The Therapy Room, and Fiona Maher O’Sullivan, a couple’s counselor at In contact Counselling and Training Centre, advise on overcoming the following conflicts:Challenge #1: Coming to terms with how each party deals with fertility issuesWHAT? In general, men and women react very differently to emotional issues — women tend to prefer talking about an issue and finding a solution as a couple, while men may appear withdrawn. Noting that infertility brings a couple to a very vulnerable place in the relationship, O’Sullivan explains, “Often, when men appear to be emotionally distant (‘stonewalled’), research shows their heart activity is high, so they are emotionally affected, but can’t show this.” The term stonewalling refers to a listener when he withdraws from interacting, becomes unresponsive or evasive such as by tuning out or turning away.

Are there any activities just for mommies around? Thought maybe there is some group that meets on a weekly basis and share ideas about raising super duper lively children! What about starting a group like this?? Is there anyone interested? :D

I have been approached two times now recently at the shopping centre by people who thinks my son is so cute and if I would not like to get in touch with them for modeling work for him. Well, I tried to look up the company names they were giving and feel a bit suspicous. Still... makes me start thinking. He is quite a charmer, especially if someone takes the camera out. Maybe I should give it a try? But are there any reputable companies out there? Where they don't try to make you pay a lot of money for a portofolio and that's the end of the story? And of course, who are interested in a very blond caucasian looking boy.

I want to catch up with a few friends for lunch and I'm looking for a good, central lunch venue. One of us has a 2yo. I'd like to find somewhere that kid friendly, but still does nice lunch and serves wine. The wine is very important! Any recommendations?

My son has been having some behavioral issues in school lately, and I suppose at home too. It's usually be put down to typical pre-school boy behavior but in spite of any interventions so far, he's not improving. He has regular tantrums in school (throws chairs/tables, rips charts etc off walls), doesn't pay attention and doesn't play well with others and often hits/pushes his friends. I'm afraid we may need to see a specialist to find out if there are ways we can work on this at home, or if he needs to work with a professional. Does anyone have a Dr they can recommend who deals with this type of behavior in pre-school age children. Many thanks in advance.

I have children (aged 2 ~ 8) and would like to know about any volunteering possibilities in Switzerland. Ideally, we'd like to volunteer as a family (with children) once a week, as a great way to give back to society. thank you! Yves
