1.Parents disagreeing with each other isn't a bad thing. In fact it's both normal and good for our kids. It's how you handle these disagreements that will have a direct impact on your children.
2.Disagreements over parenting issues like discipline can get very heated and may not only cause conflict for between the parents but confusion for the kids.
1.Respect Each Others Point of View
•Know which parent is the most invested in the issue. Your two different people from two different backgrounds. Some things are going to be more important to one parent than they are the other.
•Pick your battles.
•Respecting the other persons view helps you compromise and concede the issues that are less important to you.
2.Agree to Disagree
•Continued arguing only makes the matter worse. Walk away and agree to discuss the issue when things are less heated.
•Disagreeing is not the problem...how you disagree is. Do you attack, avoid, surrender or negotiate when you disagree?
•Learning how to compromise with each other will help both parents be more clear with their children.
3. Discuss...Don't Fight in Front of the Kids.
•It's good for kids to see mom and dad to have disagreements and it's even better for kids to see their parents resolve those differences in a respectful manner.
•However, children shouldn't see their parents fighting about parenting issues.
•Kids respond best when they see their parents as unified and working together.
•The key is don't say or do anything in front of your kids that you wouldn't want them to say in front of you.
