Fighting over your children’s education - ARTICLE

Your children are an essential aspect of your relationship that you both influence.

When it comes to your children’s education, you touch on deep values.

The best is to discuss these issues even before you decide to have children together.

Aspects of their education like religious directions, schools or discipline are all areas which can unveil deep differences of opinion.

If you didn’t discuss these topics before and are confronted with this challenge, go back to respect and tolerance.

Use dialogue.

Remember that each of you is responsible for 50% of the child’s education.

Put the interest of your children first and be ready to make concessions if you feel you can’t have it 100% your way.

Remember! Tolerance, respect, dialogue and diplomacy.

Aim for win-win and always keep your child’s best interest in mind.
