Partner Parenting

How did you answer?

Mostly A:
Game on! You've put together a winning team.

Mostly B:
Take time out for a quick huddle. Sit down with your partner and tell him/her that you need to stop arguing and start working together. You each have strong opinions about how to raise the baby, and you need to learn how to meet in the middle. Talk through some of the bigger issues and find some compromises  -- it's ok to let him do his own thing every so often!

Mostly C:
Do some recruiting. Your team has only one player, and you need two. It's time to tell your partner that you need help with the baby and discuss how you can start parenting together. For more advice, click on "Mom/Relationships" in the toolbar at the top of the page.
