We are LIVE again!

We are LIVE again talking about how to make a marriage last! I’m Joelle and Dr. Dabney here again going live look-ins expert I think over the weekend Dr. Dabney celebrated a milestone – tell me about what that milestone does in case she caught my two second story on Instagram it was about my is my husband’s in my 27th wedding anniversary which truly seems impossible yes I mean so I’ve been married nine years and I guess my biggest question and I think I asked Dr. Dabney this all the time but one thing that people asked you is you know how do you make it 27 years how do you make it one year it’s what’s that biggest piece of advice you would give any married couple you know yeah at last well since I treat marriages I guess not no but not always a couple but sometimes I just treat one person in the marriage which fixes the marriage by the way that’s one hint if you need help you gotta go but that’s my advice in general it there is no magic bullet to get you through all the problems you’re gonna face so you need help go get it we got help Darryl and I we had parenting disagreements and it wasn’t easy I’m still harder for him than me because I’m in the field but you know it’s never easy to ask for help but the relief and the amount of trouble you overcome is so worth it it’s just it’s just silly it’s almost silly not to get help because we made so much progress so fast and I don’t think we would have made it or at least wouldn’t be as happy where we are now if we didn’t get that help do you have any advice for those people that you know are not married yet that are engaged or you know kind of making that step there’s no any premarital advice so to speak it’s sort of a same thing if you if you start by having the understanding that were going to get help when we need it then just becomes more automatic it’s not so oh my god we need help something’s wrong with us it just becomes more second nature I know the Catholic faith has you do that mmm right so and I think that’s …

Destroying your child’s self esteem in the name of “good parenting”

hello everybody and happy Tuesday I’m Dr. Laura Dabney relationship psychiatrist coming to you live. I usually talk about intimate relationships between obviously boyfriend/girlfriend husband/wife type of things but this month we’re talking about parenting. The toughest job you’ll never never be thanked for and this has brought up a lot of comments and a lot of talk around here so that’s all good. so I thought we would continue on from last week and talk this time about self esteem.  there’s a lot of people come in with the wrong impression of what good parenting is thinking that it’s going to create a great person or a great relationship and in fact these methods hurt your child’s self-esteem or keeps the self-esteem from growing so although executive helping executive men with their intimate relationships is my thing as I’ve told you here several times and I’ll just keep saying it this is my way of helping anybody who is having emotional problems relationship struggles of any kind this is a way to make you feel more comfortable give you some help until you’re ready to come in pick up the phone call email however you reach out to us all right and I also do than the men come in about relationship problems often times it is with a adolescent child or a young adult child so that’s where I’ve gotten all this information synthesizing it all for you here today and this month so the parenting techniques that seem good to some people or seem good on the surface that really aren’t start with the good soldier technique maybe because we’re in a military community I don’t know but there are a lot of parents who think that the child who is obedient yes sir no sir type that that’s a that’s a good kid right there and there’s nothing wrong with bad manners who not saying and manners is something you need to teach a child for sure but an obedient child is not a good shot I actually cringe when somebody comes in and the child’s in college and they’ve been a ok the whole time because that means the child has not be able to practice the other thing that they need to be well-developed human beings that can be in a relationship and that is their aggressive skills ok you by making them by …
