  • About the Guest

  • Yes, but it's uncommon. Co-parents rarely coordinate their parenting styles, but when they can keep their expectations and discipline strategies in line, children benefit from the consistent boundaries and can't play one home off the other. So, parents, how do you get there? Read the same parenting book, attend the same class, and if necessary, have a parent coordinator help you get on the same page. It'll take some work, but when you find agreement, it's a huge blessing for your child.

Ron: Yeah, parental unity is a really good idea. But can co-parents, living in two different homes, find parental unity?

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

Ron: Yes, believe it or not, they can. Now, it’s uncommon. Co-parents rarely coordinate their parenting styles, but when they can keep their expectations and discipline strategies in line, children benefit from the consistent boundaries and can’t play one home off the other. (I’m sorry, kids, I’m giving away all your secrets here, but I’ve got to help your parents out.)

So, parents, how do you get there? Read the same parenting book, attend the same class, and if necessary, have a parent coordinator help you get on the same page. It’ll take some work, but when you find agreement, it’s a huge blessing for your child. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
