Are your children a bridge or a wedge?

Wedge:

  • You have separate discipline policies, differing goals for the children, and different methods of communicating with the children.
  • You talk negatively to the children about the other parent and force the children to take sides between the parents.
  • You use the children as an excuse for a bad marriage.

Bridge:

  • When talking about your kids, you use the time to dream together, plan for your parenting, and escape for your personal time.
  • You refuse to let the children pit one of you against the other.
  • Major decisions about the children force you to come together, which in turn helps strengthens your marriage.
