A lot of couple’s feuds come up due to false expectations. Most women have very high expectations of their partner and their role as a future parent. They picture a perfect parent for their future perfect baby. Some men hold false expectations as well. However, there is no such thing as perfection and therefore no perfect person or perfect parents. Knowing this from the beginning could be helpful for both of you to consciously contributing to your child’s future education and parenting.
In order to avoid future feuds, the best thing you could do is to have a talk with your partner about your expectations for your family. These could range from how many children you’d like to have, to how you are going to handle your roles in parenting. This could not only eliminate false expectations but could also help you plan a family.
Remember, the nine months of pregnancy allow you to prepare for the arrival of a new member in the family. The best way to prepare is by informing yourself and working on good habits. Reading about topics that you don’t know much about could help you prevent future family issues. Likewise, clarifying important issues with your partner can help you avoid creating false expectations, and therefore avoid possible discussions.
