Encourage your parenting partner

“It’s really important for husbands to encourage their wives in their job of mothering, to praise them for their skills and hard work and for mothers to build up and encourage dads. John is really good at it. He continually reminds me of my worth and of how much he values my being at home as a mother to our children.” – Julia Anderson, wife of John Anderson, former Deputy Prime Minister of Australia

  • Your children value what you do. When you value the work of their mother, so will they
  • When you, as parents, support and encourage one another it strengthens your relationship
  • Parenting can often be a thankless job. Make a conscious effort to change that in your home. Tell your wife thank you for all she does.
