How do you and DH / SO come to a compromise when you both strongly do not agree with a parenting issue? And, it can be something small, just something.

I usually get my way

I do have the more forceful personality, so that tilts things in my favour, but we do end up compromising a lot. I won't budge on certain things (breastfeeding, hitting), but usually we make an agreement that both of us are okay, but not thrilled with and it just becomes what's normal for us.

Hmm. . .I would say that I usually get my way too. LOL. Gary was trying to take the bottle away from Bubs wayyy earlier than he was ready and he was like, I want him to get off the bottle but the baby still wanted it. So I said no. He still wants it. He's fine. lol I think so far thats been the biggest issue. Anything else I just say, this is what we are doing and he agrees.

If we can't come to a compromise, then we lean toward whoever it's more important to. I used to always get my way but then I realized he needs to feel like his opinion counts in raising our kids as well.

I usually always get my way too but there are certain things that DH will feel strong about and I am like "Yeah ok....". Like the other night he wanted to take out Drakes bath toys, not all but some because he does not play with them and I was like "No, he looks cute with them floating around." Something silly like that! HA! A more serious situation would be different.
