Parenting. It’s hectic, Complicated. Fatiguing. Wonderful. Meaningful. Frightening. One would think that it would be easier with two people doing it, and it is in many ways. But you can get in battles about everything from who’s the better parent to who cares the most to who is the better disciplinarian. Dr. Margaret offers four major ways of behaving as parents to avoid those pitfalls, including the realization that your parenting differences are often in the best interest of your children. SelfWork’s listener email is Dr. Margaret’s response to a woman who began dating quite soon after learning her marriage was over, and who was drawn to someone with narcissistic tendencies.
