What should you do when one parent seems like they are always the good guy and you seem like the bad guy in comparison?

Sometimes that happens with families that are going through a divorce. One parent might be able to buy a little bit more than the other parent, or take their kids on trips, or do certain things, or maybe they're giving them "yes" answers when they really should be giving them "no" answers. I always stop the kids at the door because they bring back a lot of emotional and behavioral baggage with them. It's like their luggage.

I stop them at the door and say, "Let's get re-acclimated to life here." How we would act in a classroom is different than how we act in a church or on a basketball court. How you're going to be with your father is different than how how you're going to be here at home with me, and there's different expectations. I don't hold it against that other person how they run their household, but I make sure that the children understand where they're at when they're with me.
