If you ever argue with your spouse @ child-rearing or discipline, check out these tips:

Present a united front to your child. Avoid criticizing your partner if he's in the middle of responding to a situation. Plan ahead to avoid future clashes by talking through key issues when you're both relaxed.

Agree to disagree. You'll be able to compromise on many issues but not all. In those cases, the one who's with the child the most should hold more sway.

Stick to specifics. Limit your discussion to a narrow issue (how much TV to permit) rather than wading off into generalities ("You always undermine what I say").
