About This Workshop
Parenting differences between partners can be helpful but over time those differences can become problematic. Learn how to decrease the polarization of your parenting styles and reach some agreements that will reduce the conflict. Each of us grows up in a unique family and when we come together as a couple, we don’t usually talk about our parenting beliefs until children are actually on the scene. The more intentional parents are about sharing their stories and values with each other, the more likely it is that you can agree on parenting approaches. Sometimes there are differences between genders or just individual styles. Those differences can be helpful to children, but only if you recognize the strengths of each other’s approaches. “Marshmallows” often join with “Generals” because in some ways they need each other. Over time, however, your differences can become more dramatic and problematic.
