It is not uncommon for parents to disagree about how to parent their children.
Parenting styles refer to the general approach that parents use to raise their children. There are several recognized parenting styles, including authoritarian, permissive, authoritative, and uninvolved. Each of these styles can have both positive and negative effects on children.
On the other hand, dangerous parenting involves behaviors that can cause harm to children physically, emotionally, or psychologically. Some examples of dangerous parenting include physical abuse, neglect, emotional abuse, and exposure to drugs or violence.
While different parenting styles can have different effects on children, dangerous parenting is universally harmful and can lead to long-lasting negative consequences for children. It's important for parents to be aware of the difference between parenting styles and dangerous parenting and to strive to provide a safe and supportive environment for their children to grow and thrive.
A court will not intervene if parents disagree on things such as bedtime, how much screen time children get, whether they eat organic food or not etc., etc., but there are signs to look for that may require you to take further action:
If your child is showing signs of any of the above, it is important to speak with either the authorities, The Department of Family and Child Protective Services, and possibly an attorney to seek a change to the custody agreement.
