Questions for You
How much of the day to day struggles can I share with my spouse without causing undue stress?
What are the essential things that need to be shared (especially those that relate to finances or our future)?
Questions for the Family
What are my worst fears? What do I want to know? What would I rather not hear?
Tools and Exercises
Have a conversation as a family. Identify what you need to share, what you want to share, and how you’ll share. Talk about whether you’ll have a regular family meeting, or share on an as needed basis? Are there good or bad times to discuss as a family?
