You both want the best for your child. There's only one problem; actually agreeing on what the "best" is.
What one parent could think is a great idea; the other may view differently. This is normal -- a lot of parents butt heads on the "right" way to raise their kids. There are all kids of parenting styles; you're not going to agree on everything, but how can you solve this conflict and meet in the middle?
Frankly, it's rare for a mom and dad to parent similarly says Fran Walfish, PsyD., child and family psychotherapist and author in Beverly Hills.
"To be a good parent each mom and dad must be comfortable doing two things at the same time - nurture/love and setting/following-through on boundaries and limits. If one parent does one thing and the other parent does another, you are each only doing half of your full job," Dr. Walfish says.
