Parenting As A Team Helps Raise A Healthy, Happy & Successful Child!
Raising your child as a team is when both you and your partner work together by agreeing on making decisions and supporting your child together. This way you and your partner feel more supported as you have a common goal in mind of raising a healthy, happy and successful child. This, however, doesn’t mean that you and your partner will never disagree, as you are two different individuals and are entitled to your different thoughts or opinions on raising your child. However, team parenting is all about reaching a common ground and it’s all about how you handle your disagreements together. It’s all about teamwork and managing your child’s bedtimes, meals, discipline amidst sharing the household chores, income etc. Parenting as a team is also about caring not just for your child but for each other because remember how you interact with your partner has a huge influence on your child. If you work as a team together your child not only feels safe and happy but also learns the importance of ‘respectful’ communication and healthy relationships, which is key for their emotional growth and development. Parenting together as a team also has a positive impact on you and your partner as it makes you feel happy, content and confident with your partner, making the parenting journey a lot easier and more fun.
