Cupid’s Advice:

The decision to have a second child comes with a lot of added responsibilities. Cupid has some parenting advice to help with the new bundle of joy:

1. Teamwork: Caring for children takes time, patience, and a lot of teamwork. Make sure that you and your partner have open lines of communication about how to tackle parenthood. Picking up each other’s slack will help things run smoothly, especially when you’re talking two children instead of two.
