A house divided would alway come crashing down. To bring up children successfully needs a united front between the parents. Children are cunning and tend to want their own way half the time and if they see any weakness or lack of unity between the parents they would exploit it ruthlessly to their own advantage. If this happens and through the parents stupidity the children are successful in splitting them up because they side with one parent against the other you can bet it would not be long before there is a permanent civil war and the children end up ruling the house and running the show

Good topic

I think though, that there is a fine line between "bashing black men or women" and preparing a child for the realities of adulthood. I think it is always appropriate to tell and 11 or 12 year old black girl not to trust every guy that gets in your face. and I think it's appropriate for men to tell their teen sons to steer clear of lil fast tail girls who might "trap him up" all because hormones can't be controlled.

Is that bashing?

No that is NOT bashing that is common sense and any good parents looking out for their children would do that.

Bashing on the other hand is where one Parent deliberately or foolishly ridicules or puts the other down to the child or teen to carry favour with the child or for whatever reason. That is a no no if you BOTH don't want to loose the children or damage their self-esteem. From my experience where parents have done this the children leave home and rarely come back with the grandchildren to create a one big HAPPY family.
