I have a question I’d like to pose to the masses. What if you had children and you wanted to raise/discipline them in a certain way but their other parent had very different ideas on how things should be done. How do you handle that?
- You think the kids should have a curfew. The co-parent thinks they should be able to stay out all night.
- You feel spankings are in order but the co-parent says no way, no how!
- You want to enroll the kids in extra-curricular activities to expose them to different things but the co-parent is adamant that it’s not necessary.
- The co-parent is a meat and potatoes person but you are a vegetarian.
If you both are actively raising the children together then the co-parent’s view can’t very well be discarded. How do you navigate these difficult waters?
