Snippet of the day

My mother wants to help my wife with the baby, but they have very different ideas on caring for the baby. How can I help them agree with each other so that it doesn’t stress our marriage?

Listen and understand from your wife the areas of disagreement and list them down. Do not try to rationalise with her as she may think you are taking sides. Acknowledge her concerns and discuss what can be done. Ask for her opinion on how, when and where she thinks your mother can be of assistance.
 

After both of you have come to an agreement, you can be the representative to communicate the information to your mother. Again, it is important to be objective and not be seen to side either party or you will be put in a difficult position between your wife and mother.
