  • Single parents and blended-family parents know they can't control how the other home parents the children but what do you do when there is an unhealthy influence? Decide together with your spouse which issues are worth the battle and how you'll proceed. This will protect your marriage and help you brace for impact. Then, use respect to engage the other home and look for things you agree on. Remember, the battle is for your child's wellbeing, not necessarily yours.

Ron: When kids live between two homes, you can’t win every parenting battle, but some issues are a hill worth dying on.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: Single parents and blended-family parents know that they can’t control how the other home parents the children but what do you do when there is an unhealthy influence? Well, trying to live at peace does mean making accommodations from time to time, but not every time.

Start here. Decide together with your spouse which issues are worth the battle and how you’ll proceed. This will protect your marriage and help you brace for impact. Then, use respect to engage the other home and look for things you agree on. Remember, the battle is for your child’s wellbeing, not necessarily yours. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
