Combining Parenting Styles
A fundamental skill for powerful parenting is your ability to set clear, direct, and specific limits. Limits should be easy for your child to follow. But it's hard to always know what your non-negotiable limits for behavior should be, so wouldn't you think that parenting with your spouse would make it easier? Not so, according to many of the parents I work with in consultation. While most parents agree that parenting together is important, many say that blending two parenting styles makes setting limits even harder.
