HEY DAD....HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED: WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED TO MY MARRIAGE? I KNOW I DID....
DO ANY OF THESE SOUND FAMILIAR?
CAN YOU RELATE?
As much as we love our kids, the truth is, they have a dramatic way of getting in the way of our connection with our partner.
You're busy working, and she's busy being engrossed with the children.
And now it feels like the two of you are just ships in the night. You're doing the parenting part really well, but what about the marriage part?
If you're anything like me, I could imagine you're feeling pretty disconnected from her and you can't seem to change the tide.
HAVE YOU EVER FELT THIS WAY?
All of the sudden, what used to be your bed, is now the family bed and you're thinking WTF?
Of course every time you say something about it, she gets pissed at you and says "you don't get it".
But you're wanting more. You're wanting more intimacy with your wife. You're wanting to return some semblence of "loving feelings" into your marriage.
Everytime you bring it up, you probably feel like "the bad guy" and she keeps blowing it off.
IS THIS HAPPENING TO YOU?
Not only are you feeling like ships in the night and not having sex very often, but you might even be arguing more.
92% of couples with young children report fighting more since the arrival of children. If this is you, just know you're not alone.
But fighting is exhausting....who has time for that and who wants to do that. You know the feeling - after a fight it's just nearly impossible to get anything done the next day.
Your mind is elsewhere. You're pissed. You're confused. And you're just not sure what to do anymore.
WHAT IF IT DIDN'T HAVE TO BE THAT WAY?
I HAVE THE PERFECT SOLUTION FOR YOU
As a Dad to two young boys, I'm very aware of how young children throw a wrench into things for our marriages.
This is why I've created the Our New Normal 8-day Masterclass.
It's 8-days of educational material and at-home exercises to address the BIGGEST challenges that new Dad's face in their marriages.
8-days of new information and material to change the tide in your relationship.
(**This is a picture of my first son. Can you see how nuts he is? He totally threw a wrench into my own marriage.)
IT'S SO EASY, AND SO CONVENIENT
EVERYTHING DELIVEREED TO YOUR EMAIL INBOX.
YOU NEVER HAVE TO LEAVE THE HOUSE.
YOU CAN LISTEN TO ALL THE MATERIAL WHILE DRIVING TO WORK.
8-DAYS OF TEACHING ON RELATIONSHIPS
8-days of unique downloadable audio files targeting very specific stage-of-life challenges that Dad's with young children face.
These audio resources will educate, provide insight, and help new Dad's develop a greater understanding of the relationship dynamics that change when young kids are introduced into the relationship. So basically, you're gonna learn a ton and feel less crazy!
I'm guaranteeing that you will learn something new, something transformative, and something very helpful.
Being a Dad in the 21st century requires a new road map and I want to be your guide!
*A total of 9 different audio files over the course of 8-days.
8-DAYS OF AT-HOME ASSIGNMENTS
8-days of at-home assignments designed to develop relationship change and improve interpersonal skills. I’m giving you the best of what I know packed into 8 days.
Practicing these skill-building exercises is where you’re going to see some big changes in your relationship. Each day, you'll receive an "individual" assignment to do on your own, and also a "couple" assignment to do with your partner (totally optional).
NOTE: If your partner is reluctant to particpate in this program, it will still be massively beneficial for your marriage to do it on your own!! You don't NEED her to do anything!
*A total of 16 different assignments over the course of 8-days.
**PLUS: 2 additional BONUS giveaways that will certainly save you from your next fight!
THE TOPICS WE'LL COVER IN 8-DAYS
TAKE A LOOK AT THE DIFFERENT TOPICS WE'LL MOVE THROUGH OVER 8-DAYS. THIS IS THE MEAT OF THE MASTERCLASS.
DAY #1: "What The Heck Happened To Us?"
A detailed look at what really happens for couples when they introduce children. This will be a fresh and new perspective and why things are the way they are.
DAY #2: Becoming a Parent and a Spouse
We'll take a look at the shifting identities as new parents and how these new identities have a big impact on all marriages. Most importantly, we'll learn what to do to make it better.
DAY #3:Learning to Connect Again
In this segment, we'll take a look at what we can do to maintain that ever so important emotional connection with our partner, even with all the new roles as new parents.
DAY #4: Restoring Sexual Intimacy
Sex? Who has time for it?! In this section, we'll talk about why sex is important and what we can do to re-establish the sexual connection in a win-win way that works for both of you.
DAY #5: Getting Better at Self-Care
With all the pressures and demands that come with young children, we neglect ourselves in the process. In this section, I'll show you ways to balance self-care and convince you that it's essential to your marriage that you do a good job at being good to yourself.
DAY #6: Learning How to Fight Better
We're sleep-deprived, run-down, and just cranky. Fights are happening and sometimes it gets ugly. In this section, I'll give you some helpful insights to take your fights from "Code-Red" to talking peacefully about what's really bothering you.
DAY #7: Dealing with those In-Laws
There's something about in-laws that can sometimes drive us nuts, and unfortunately drive a wedge between partners. This section will be geared to understanding why we fight about our in-laws and what we can do to come together as a couple instead.
DAY #8: Leaving a Meaningful Legacy
This will be our closing chapter for the workshop and we'll talk about why all of this matters anyway and we'll learn to see that what we're doing matters immenseley to the future of the world (having bedrock families). What an honor to participate in something so grand.
This is me with my really cool family. Even though we all look really happy in this picture, trust me - it isn't always this way.
My wife and I have had our share of ups and downs and our transition to parenthood definitely wasn't smooth sailing.
Sleep depreivation. More arguments. Less sex. Ugh....
So, I began reading, and reading, and reading nearly every book and article on the transition to parenthood. I learned so much about this stage of life.
And over time....it became a bit of a personal mission to share with others all of the information I gathered.
Because it was this information that was a total game-changer for me.
And naturally, this bled into my work to the point where working with new Dads became a focus of my marriage counseling practice.
I've been the therapist for so many Dads....I know what works and what doesn't.
I don't pretend to have it all figured out. But, without question, I do know how to help couples with young children get their relationship back on track.
I simply want to share with you what I know.
ARE YOU RIGHT FOR OUR NEW NORMAL MASTERCLASS?
I'M LOOKING FOR BAD-ASS DAD'S
That's you right? You're a bad-ass guy that wants to have a killer marriage and be a great Dad too right?
That's who I'm looking for to do this Masterclass. Quality men. Quality guys that I'd want to be friends with.
If you're a dude that gives-a-shit about doing things well and being the kind of husband that is irresistable to his wife, then this is for you. Here's what I'm looking for:
Dad's with young children under the age of 5.
A willingness to learn and an open mind.
A desire to make some positive changes in your marriage.
Not in a marriage crisis (if you are in crisis, email me).
What can I expect to be diffrent after doing this Master Class?
That's a great question. What I can guarantee you is this: You'll learn a ton of stuff about having a successful marriage with young children. I'll show you exactly what you need to do, and how to do it. If you take the Masterclass seriously and work through the at-home exercises, your marriage will be in a differnt place after 8-days. Boom!
Do I need my wife to participate with me in the Master Class?
Nope! That's the cool part. I've made this Masterclass just for guys to do solo. However, I do offer some at-home exercises that you can do with your wife if she wants to participate with you, but it's definitely not essential and totally optional.
What if I don't like it?
Hey, I totally get that it's not for everyone. No hard feelings. If for whatever reason, you're not feeling it, just email me to cancel within 48 hours of the start and I'll refund all your money. No questions asked. How can you lose?
But doesn't my wife need to work on her part too?
Yep - she does. Absolutely. But here's the cool thing about this Masterclass: If you digest the material and do all of the at-home exercises, I'm convinced that by the end of 8-days your relationship will start to feel different and your wife just might feel way more cool to be around - because of all the changes you did! Of course, I'm not letting her off the hook, but right now, you're just gonna do this Masterclass to focus on you.
Do I need to go to marriage counseling too?
Of course I'm biased and think everyone could benefit from couples counseling. BUT...as a marriage counselor, I'll be the first to tell you that not everyone needs to go to marriage counseling and spend a ton of money. A lot of marriage dilemas can be solved less expensively by simply gaining some new insight and trying some new things. This Masterclass is just that. So to answer your question, I'd say give this a try and then if you feel like you need more, that's always an option.
