​​Differences in parenting styles are a problem for both parents and children. At the least it invites kids to play one parent against the other in a smart attempt to get the answer that they want to hear. This is not the child's fault. After all he is just using good common sense. 

Register for the free 4-week parent support program to learn what is going on in your teen's head, improve communication, encourage responsibility, and discipline effectively.

Food is provided. Child care is available with prior registration.

However, it does create a situation in which rules are not clear or consistently enforced, which is bad for the child as well as for the parent. At its extreme, a polarization of styles can occur in which one parent compensates for the perceived weaknesses of the other. For example, if the father is too strict, the mother may overcompensate by becoming more lenient. That may prompt the father to become even stricter as he attempts to overcompensate for her leniency. The result can be a very confusing world for the child to navigate—one that makes it hard to make sense of reality and can set the stage for mental health problems in some children.
