Cupid’s Advice:

1. Figure out your styles: It will be easier to mesh your two parenting techniques together once you both identify which technique you prefer. The three types of parents are generally authoritative, passive, and democratic. Once you and your partner pinpoint your styles you can figure out how to make them work effectively together.

2. Take turns: No one parent should be in full control of the children. Both should take turns dealing with any problems that arise so that both parties are involved in the children’s upbringing.

3. Compromise, not compete: If your children see you and your partner disagree when it comes to raising them then the kids will start to think that they have some of the control. Sure Daddy may say no to buying me a new tricycle, but Mommy is sure to say yes. Parents should work together, not against one another.
