Don’t Be Defensive
About the Guest
To be a good team, when you make an observation that could be helpful, share it. Not in a condemning fashion but in a constructive way. This might be delicate but healthy parents give each other permission to speak gently into one another's lives so they can raise godly kids. Here's the trap for stepfamily couples to avoid: to the biological parent advice can feel like criticism of their child and to the stepparent it can feel like rejection or distrust. Don't get defensive. Help each other.
Really good parents-give each other advice.
