Be his wife, not his mother. Don’t tell him what to do and how to do it, but ask questions and let him give his opinion. CELEBRATE your husband’s adventure and encourage and edify his wild side. This empowers him as a husband, father, and man.
Be her husband, not a father, and celebrate and encourage her to do what is important to her. Listen to her and let her know that how she feels is important to you. Ask questions to show her you are really listening. CELEBRATE your wife’s sensitive side and encourage her to share it with you. This will empower her as a wife, mother, and woman.
