My husband and I have different parenting styles. How can I prevent this from leading to conflicts between us?
If more than two people are responsible for the Kids there is problem, even if the two people agree on the parenting style. If the parenting style is different too the problem is even bigger. The children realise quickly that they t can play he two adults against each other and take advantage of this situation.
However, the problem can be easily overcome if only one person always is in charge of the children. You can pass the responsibility, but when you do this you must inform the children, so that they know which person is making the decisions and whose rules now apply. The person not in charge must also strictly keep to it and not get involved at all.
Repeating yourself constantly leads in most cases to a feeling of powerlessness and anger. I always made it a point not talk at the child but with the child. To get the child’s attention I went on eye level with him/her. I did not start giving the instruction until I was sure to have his/her attention. During our communication I kept eye contact and once I was finished I asked if he /she understood the communication.
