Parents should also make sure to always put up a unified front when it comes to how they will raise their sons and daughters. This means that the rules should be the same regardless of which house the child is at.

A child should never be put in the middle of an argument between the parents. Disputes should either be resolved in private or with the help of a mediator. Online tools are available to help parents who may have no other way of communicating without sparking some sort of conflict.
