Angry Parents
I am very worried about my brother-in-law's children. He and his wife married at age 25, their daughter was born about 2 years afterwards. When she was 9 months my sister-in-law discovered she was pregnant again - to her horror. Their little boy's birth brought a lot of anxiety, the parents had trouble to cope with two little ones at once. My sister-in-law confides a lot in me and told me she is now at a stage where they did not have sex for more than 3 months (maybe she's scared of getting pregnant again), they are fighting all the time, the children are throwing tantrums and there is an obvious lack of discipline in their home. I desperately want to help them. What can they do?

SOunds like they need to see and work with a counsellor, to sort out their problems, maybe see a marriage counsellor together. And don't they URGENTLY need to see a contraception counsellor at a local clinic, so they can learn that it's not necessary to either have more kids than you can cope with, or to avoid sex altogether ?
