    Kids, of course, are often affected positively or negatively by a couple’s coping.
    Couples might also visit or for more ideas on ways kids can use strengths to build resilience, and model their healthy coping after their parents’.

      Dr. Taylor: Thanks for the response to the recommendation for couples to ” Pratice the Positives.” As we mention and as you handle wonderfully on your site ( ) the reciprocal impact of children and their parents ( the couple) both in terms of inevitable stress as well as the potential for handling it with resilience and love is very powerful!
      It is the message worth sending – Thanks, Suzanne
