Avoid the good cop, bad cop trap

If you are separated from your partner, disciplining your children can become more difficult.

  • Don’t avoid disciplining your children
  • Be a parent not a pal
  • Avoid doing the good cop, bad cop routine – consider what is best for your kids

Tips:

Look for opportunities to be involved

Teachable moments happen regularly. Be on the lookout for these opportunities and take advantage.

Tips:

Stay connected during the day

Having a job that takes you away from home for a large part of the day need not mean you lose touch with your children.
