Welcome to the podcast BLENDING THE FAMILY

Mar 30, 2021

 

I could not stop thinking about Terry Gaspard's book and how it can help parents with some of the tips she covers in her book.

There were three points I wanted to share with you in this episode:

1. Positive Reflection

2. Love

3. Finacial Health

My hope is that you will listen to Terry's episode and this one to compare notes. Would love to know what you thought about this episode?

In this episode, I am once again joined by Terry Gaspard (she was on episode 28) to talk about her brilliant new book "the Re-marriage manual: How to Make Everything Work Better the Second Time Around". 

What I learned from the book:

1. I need to do a better job of telling my wife Ann, I love her more often.

2. Let Ann know more things she has done in a positive way (the podcast will explain better).

3. The six-second kiss

4. The name Tommy was popular.

5. I WAS RIGHT!! 

As promised the "Six Strategies for Increasing Communication and Creating Loving Intimacy:

1. Be sure you first understand, and then seek to be understood.

2.Freely Communicate your admiration and fondness for your partner.

3. Catch your partner doing something "right" and compliment them for it (this was an eye-opener for me).

4. Practice offering mutual gratitude on a regular basis.

5. Turn toward your partner.

6. Remind yourself of your partner's positive qualities and express your positive feelings out loud several times each day.

Who is Terry?

Terry Gaspard, MSW, LICSW

I am a licensed therapist, college instructor, and non-fiction author, specializing in divorce, marriage, children, and relationships. I am a regular contributor to The Gottman Relationship Blog, Patheos.com, marriage.com, Huffington Post, TheGoodMenProject.com, DivorcedMoms.com, and DivorceMagazine.com.

My book, Daughters of Divorce: Overcome the Legacy of Your Parents’ Breakup and Enjoy a Happy, Long-Lasting Relationship, was co-authored with my daughter Tracy and published by Sourcebooks in 2016. As a therapist, I am interested in helping people heal from the pain they experience related to divorce and other challenges and losses. My interest in the lives of women who grew up in divorced families began with my own experience. My passion for this topic grew as my clinical practice included many daughters of divorce and I experienced divorce. When I wrote Daughters of Divorce, I supplemented my clinical and personal experience by interviewing more than 300 hundred women raised in divorced families.

My initial research study in 1995 included 198 women and I discovered that the loss of access to both parents was associated with low-self-esteem in daughters of divorce. Following that, I studied a larger, diverse sample of over 300 adults and examined issues such as interpersonal relationships, trust, family climate, and self-esteem. Both studies were published in the Journal of Divorce and Remarriage. My book, Daughters of Divorce, discusses findings from my research and offers poignant stories from the women I interviewed about their quest for fulfilling relationships that endure the test of time.

My new book, The Remarriage Manual: How to Make Everything Work Better the Second Time Around, will be published by Sounds True in February of 2020. It provides powerful real-life stories, action steps, and strategies for the millions of couples who are taking a chance on love in a second (or third) marriage. Grounded in 100 in-depth interviews of remarried people, The Remarriage Manual gives readers a clear road map to better relationship skills so they can build the happy, long-lasting marriages they desire.

After each chapter of the book, I present to you questions. I have been working on other chapters of the book, so, when I read these questions to you it has been a while. Meaning, it is almost seeing them for the first time.

Here are the questions that I will be talking about:

1. How would you have handled the breakup of your marriage differently? Where people shocked that the marriage ended? ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
2. How did the divorce affect your children and what ways are you supporting them emotionally? ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
3. What new life lessons not only have you learned and what have you taught your children? ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
4. Is there a consistent memory that the children talk about? What steps helped you with your own grieving process? ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
5. What was a win for you today? How will you continue each day with a daily win?______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
