Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

My son is four years old, he will be five in April. His dad and I have been seperated since he was 1. We have 50/50 court custody. The issue is here, my son just old his grandparents( my parents) that he is tired of going back and forth to different houses. He has been acting up with a real bad attitude and its hard to communicate with his father because he hates "confrontation". So here is my question, how can I make it easier for my son to go from here to there? Is there something that I am doing wrong? I am more of the strict parent and his dad is the lenient one..I just want the best for my son..

Both of you need to be on the same page as far as discipline goes. Having one easy parent and one strict parent can be hard enough when the family is together, but it can be even more difficult and confusing when there are separate households.At this point, there isn't a lot you can do if you have joint custody. Your son has to go back and forth. Seeing a family therapist can help you to figure out what the specific issues are and how you can solve them.
