Tip 2: Explain why

Talk to others involved in the raising of your child and explain why you do certain things. Which rules do you have and why? What do you find important? How were you raised? Try to understand each other and share positive thoughts too.

It is very important for you to keep talking. Does your partner’s behaviour sometimes annoy you? Or do you feel you have to be on your toes because you’re not sure how to raise your child? Share your feelings, discuss what you’re struggling with or what you’re missing. And don’t forget to listen to your partner’s ideas.
