Are you a POLARIZED PARENT?

This is a proliferating breed of parents whom you will identify with immediately.

With our patience plummeting and rigidity on a rise, we are bound to turn into polarized parents.

We have enormous differences with our spouses over plenty of issues.This difference of opinion between two different individuals is natural but when they have distinct, almost opposite views on parenting, they become polarized.When they fail to devise a common parenting mission, they confuse the child and make him insecure.

I, unfortunately , come across many parents during my workshops who try to outshine each other, resorting to blame game or criticism.They don’t even hesitate in turning their children into referees in their embarrassing show of ‘Who is a Better Parent?’

Polarized Parents raise children who can adapt with weirdest of people, courtesy their parents but they are insecure and indecisive.

You may not be the best fitting partners but you have to be like nut and bolt as parents.They have no value without each other.
