  • It should stay as consistent as possible. Sit down with your SO and compare notes on how you discipline. Keep the same common ones in place, get rid of one you both dont use, and then make a list of rules and consequences. Go over them with the kids and stick to them.

  • Make sure rules and consequences are the same for both sets of kids. Do not disagree about the rules in front of them and display a united front to the children. Those are my suggestions.
