It’s very common for parents to NOT to be on the same page when it comes to parenting. After all, parents come from different backgrounds and they often have different perspectives about what will “work.” Often when this happens, each parent will spend a lot of energy trying to convince the other that they need to change — a strategy that is rarely effective.
In this episode, you’ll learn:
- Why trying to convince your spouse or co-parent to change is ineffective (and a waste of your energy!)
- What you can do instead if you want to be closer to being on the same page
