My fiance and I are getting married next month. I have two daughters who are 6 and 10 and he has one son and daughter 9 and 7 that he has custody of. He believes in spanking as discipline, while I strongly disagree. When we move into together is what I am worried about. How do we mesh such different parenting styles together in one household?

Talk to him and explain to him that when he spanks and you don't, the kids are getting mixed messages which may lead to them trying to play one of you against the other. Let him know that no matter what, you have to find some sort of compromise and show a UNITED FRONT.
