5 Rules My Husband and I Follow When We Disagree About Parenting
Figuring out the best ways to shape tiny humans into well-adjusted adults can feel like any parent's personal Mt. Everest, especially when your parenting style clashes with your partner's way of doing things. To avoid the frustration and confusion of on-the-spot disagreements, my husband and I came up with five rules to follow when we don't see eye to eye. We created rules that could apply to any situation and let the common sticking points in our communication style inspire the five-step process. When we live by our rules, our relationship is stronger and our home feels more like a well-oiled machine . . . and less like a battlefield. Next time you find yourself in a stalemate with your partner, give these a try! Hopefully they'll help you as much as they help us.
