Disagreements between parents on discipline become quickly apparent when children are 2 or 3 years old and are really testing the limits. If one parent tends to be the disciplinarian while the other is far more permissive, children learn to play one parent against the other. Children may also show a strong preference for being with the parent who sets fewer rules.
Taking a parenting class is a wonderful way for parents to explore options and agree on a common parenting approach. By learning effective ways to deal with parenting challenges and hearing other people’s parenting stories, parents can discuss and decide on the approach they want to take. Wherever you are located, a great way to get on the same parenting page is by taking the Priceless Parenting online parenting class!
