Being Held Hostage
About the Guest
Single parents and stepfamily parents know that their parenting is affected by how the other home parents. If they say, "Yes" to something you said, "No" to, you start rethinking your decisions. The fear of what an ex might do can paralyze you. Pray for courage to press in despite what the other home is doing. Keep your balance and practice good parenting. Trust that providing consistent boundaries and love over time will make all the difference.
Never let your parenting be held hostage.
