Hello other mommies...
Im having quite the trouble with my family... My fiance and I are suppose to be getting married in a couple months but he is almost ready to give up becuase we have 2 different discipline actions... and it causes us to fight... I know we are a strong family but his daughter and my daughter have a hard time getting along sometimes... For the most part they are good but they like to be bossy to one another due to the fact they are the only children from my fiance and I have... I know it takes time to blend families together but how can I make things go a little smoother and make everyone happy??

How to discipline the kids is a major issue with a lot of blended families. The only way it's going to go smoother is for you and your fiancé to work together to be at least close to the same page with discipline. That way, both kids will be treated the same. They still may not think it's fair, and they still may not get along. But if you and your mate can compromise and stand together, then the kids will know they're not going to be able to pit you against each other, and some of the bickering may stop. Don't try to make everyone happy. It won't happen.
