My husband and I have different opinion about parenting this

This answer was rated:

my husband and I have different opinion about parenting this because of our different cultures but is this good for our children as we get quite frustrated to go arguing in front of our children?Thank you Jen
Thanks for coming back....while some frustrations in front of children is bound to happen, I do not believe in having full out arguments in front of children. It can cause a lot of stress and worry and could cause them to feel less safe. I would discuss with each other that when disagreements come up that you put that conversation off until a later time when it can just be the two of you without children present.

It takes some willpower to put the conversation off but the goal is for the children to feel safe and free from unnecessary worry.

Hello Jen, I did mention today to my good friend about how great experiance I had by talking to you and got to fell better and she is asking me to ask you as she is a single mum since she had her son how can she best balance the space of a father in her son's life ,the boy is now 8 years old and he feels like something is missing in his life,what is it best for him his mum to ensure he is not affected now or when he is growing up .

Thank you very much

While I would prefer that she reach out directly, I will just make some general responses about that subject. As with everything I advocate, I would be open about it with her son...allowing him to verbalize his feelings about that space and not filling in his feelings with her own. If there are mentor programs where he could have a wonderful role model that is a man, that could also help. These would be my first, general thoughts and please let her know she can reach out to me here too.

Hope you are doing well today too.
