There are parenting skills my wife is good at and I’m not. I respect her for it and she respects me for my strengths. That mutual respect helps us be a better team. Did you know heathy divorced or divided parents living in separate homes can do the same thing? There are barriers to overcome but really good co-parents find a way to respect and help each other succeed. Striving for a cooperative spirit with the other home may not be convenient for you but you know who it is good for? Your kids.
