The Parental Unity Rules Part 2

with Ron Deal | October 29, 2019

When things change maintain your parental unity by letting the biological parent communicate the change in rule. Sometimes a stepparent's authority is naturally questioned by kids. When things are changing they really need to hear from their mom or dad. Have a parent meeting to discuss what the new rule is and how you're going to communicate it and then stand side by side as the biological parent does much of the talking. It is vitally important that you maintain a united front.
