It’s hard watching our kids growing up with mixed values. One set of values at one parent’s home, another for the other. It’s confusing for our kids, and stressful for us. I actually lived through this, so let me give you some tips that could help. First, try to keep an open dialogue with your ex-spouse. I’m assuming you both love your kids and want what’s best for them. Sit down and talk together about consistency. We know that kids do better when they know both parents are working together despite their marital status. Find values you CAN agree on. Ones you don’t—do what you can to work them out. NEVER talk bad about the other. If it’s a biblical issue, let the Word do the speaking.
