Stick to different rules or match?

Recommended Posts

My ex does little things to compete. A small example is that the kids told me that instead of serving them the healthier breakfast we've always fed them, she's started feeding them lucky charms. She's doing it to be the fun mom and have them like her and her house a little more. It doesn't seem smart to stick with breakfast they don't like as much when she didn't. But I also know I shouldn't compete. There doesn't seem to be any good answer. Anyone else hit this?

In general, it's really best if you can work with the ex and have the same rules at both houses. That's a lot easier for the kids than different rules at different houses.

But, what you serve them for breakfast is pretty small in the grand scheme of things. Having the same rules around diet is one of those "nice to haves", but I don't think it's a big deal if one of you forces a slightly healthier diet than the other.

That's one of those areas that I just explain that mom and I have different preferences, so things are going to be a little different. You're never going to make things exactly the same at both houses, anyway.
