Parenting: Agreeing to disagree on discipline
October 19, 2012 (WPVI) -- Figuring out how to discipline a child can be challenging. Done right, the discipline should be fair and designed to discourage a particular behavior.
Certainly you have your own ideas on what that should be but sometimes, it is very different from your spouse's ideas.
I found a great blog offering a few pieces of advice. It discusses what to do if you find yourself at a stalemate with your husband/wife on what to do about Johnny or Judy's problem.
The article "When Parents Disagree about Discipline" is from Kimberly L. Keith, who writes in About.com's series on parenting advice for school-age children.
Mind you, this is not a debate about spanking or time outs. Keith offers advice on how to come up with a discipline plan, and how to find common ground with your spouse.
Here are a few snippets from Keith:
