July's La Tela: arguments between parents
Sent on 30 July 2022

When you see us on social media and from the outside, Alex and I are a perfect couple. Many parents write to me asking about our relationship, how we found a balance as a couple after children, and how we compromise when it comes to raising our kids. Although we are on the same page on many aspects of parenting and education — and life (!), not everyone is “crazy” enough to sell everything and travel the world full time — Alex and I are certainly not immune to the daily difficulties of parenting and marriage.

We are a normal couple: we argue, sometimes we hurt each other unintentionally or even on purpose, we often don't understand each other, we don't talk for hours or even days — living and working together 24/7 doesn't make conflict resolution easier, but over the years we have certainly learnt to let go faster. We have also become better at finding our imperfect balance, at apologizing, at acknowledging when we are wrong, at accepting the other's mistakes, at taking a step towards each other, at having less resentment, at making up faster.

Hi Carlotta, your ideas are always precious. For a few weeks now my husband has been following you and a few days ago he signed up for your newsletter, so today we read together your reflection on couple arguments. Being both synched on "La Tela" makes me feel better and balanced, because it's a way of continue growing hand in hand.
I just wanted to tell you that your newsletter couldn't have come at a better time, it was a light in a dark time. I will read and reread it, I will keep it in my soul for a long time and I hope it will give me the strength to know how to apply your advice in practice. Thank you so much.
Hi Carlotta, thank you very much for your newsletter! On the day you send it, it's my very favorite time before going to work, you always give great ideas. Hugs!

Your time and privacy are important to us.

Easy to subscribe, even easier to unsubscribe.
If my newsletter is not for you, you can unsubscribe with one click. Actually, in your profile we made you a section where you can easily decide whether or not to receive the newsletter. If what I write does not enrich you, choose not to receive it: there is already too much empty noise out there!
Once a month (plus some surprises).
We don't appreciate it when we subscribe to a newsletter and for every tiny communication they send us a newsletter… we don't want to do that to you! On La Tela we send a newsletter on the last Friday of the month or for communications that you will love to receive (like when we add some free resources in the products you bought).
No tracking and no ads.
Your privacy is important to us: your email is stored encrypted and we don't know when and if you open links in our newsletter—that's your business. And then we are inundated with websites and apps where you think about a product and a minutes later Instagram shows you ads. No, thanks! Here on La Tela that doesn't happen!
