The Today Show’s online print media journalist contacted me, given my expertise as a relationship specialist and marriage and family therapist. Specifically, they wanted my commentary regarding a survey they put out to their fan base regarding parenting and sex published for Valentine’s Day. If you are interested in this article in which I shared my perspective, here is the link: Sleep beats Sex. Additionally…I do want to use this article topic as an opportunity to briefly address the topic of sex and couples with young children. Specifically, in my work with couples, those couples whom make the time and take the time to be attuned to their mate’s sexual desires, and communicate their own, fair better in terms of sexual connection, even during the busy years of raising young children. In comparison to those couples of whom place sex to the side, as though it lacks in relevancy.
