The most common challenges parents face aren't always about how the kids are doing. Sometimes, the bigger issue is how parenthood changes your relationship with your partner. You might recognise this if it feels like you don't communicate as well since having children, or are arguing more often. You might even find there are so many other things to deal with that there just isn't time for talking or having a laugh together. All parents go through these or similar issues.
Space for Us Too is a free, guided text message service that can give you space to breathe. You can use any or all of the tips to build positive habits in your relationship and family life, or to feel refreshed and recharged in yourself.
We’ve matched experiences that parents go through with expert advice to create this free service. As a subscriber, you’ll get 20 tips sent to your phone over 5 weeks (roughly every 3 days). All of it will help you work your way through your relationship, handling change, and communicating with your partner.
Action for Children has created this service for parents in response to the things we know all families face. It uses text messages written by experienced counsellors to help you spot, understand and act on the relationship issues that get in the way of a happy home life.
As a pilot programme, we hope you'll try the service and tell us your thoughts. We develop all our resources with tried-and-tested parent feedback, and would love to include yours in building a tool that works for all families, everywhere.
