Parenting issues can be resolved if you're willing to compromise

Parents always struggle to be on the same page when it comes to their kids. Whether it's trying to decide on the best school or having true arguments about how to raise their child together to become a positive member of society, conflicts are normal. Even parents who get along well and who agree on most things about raising children may find themselves at odds at time.

Parenting issues are even more common in cases where people have divorced. Why? It depends on the couple, but there could be some frustration or disrepect playing a role in the issues. For example, if one ex-spouse feels that the other is irresponsible and that they aren't being firm enough with their child's care, that could become a major disagreement. Similarly, an ex-spouse who believes the other is too strict may find problems with the way they parent as well.

As parents who are divorced, the best thing you can do is to sit down and work out your issues. Talk about finding a middle ground and being respectful of each other's wishes. Does your ex-spouse worry about your child entering a dangerous sport? Are you adamant that they should participate? This is an example of a situation that is easily resolved by simply finding a different, less dangerous sport. Now, your child is still active and a little bit safer.

Compromise is everything. Children will see how you treat each other and handle disputes. Do what you can to compromise, and if you need support with an ex-spouse who won't work with you, your attorney will be there to help.
