Podcast 59: Vicki Hoefle, Parenting as Partners: How to Launch Your Kids Without Ejecting Your Spouse
As you well know, it doesn’t usually happen this way. “Kids highlight the real challenge in the family: the one between the parenting partners,” writes Vicki Hoefle, in her wonderful hands-on latest book, Parenting as Partners: How to Launch Your Kids Without Ejecting Your Spouse.
A true proponent of fostering independence in kids, Vicki teaches us that looking at how we were parented and melding that with the experience of our partner is truly a challenge. She believes that “having a strong marriage and having solid parenting strategies is not enough to successfully negotiate the tricky terrain of co-parenting with someone who has an entirely different idea on how to raise the kids.”
So how do we meld ideas on parenting in order to co-parent? This book (and this podcast) will help get you started.
