Having a harmonious family like sakinah, mawadah, warohmah is the dream of every married couple.
All is realized if both partners have mutual respect for their partners, mutual understanding and mutual trust. But if you don’t expect your partner to have a stubborn character that is stubborn at the standpoint, it won’t happen. Especially in parenting, stubbornness often occurs in making choices.
We as partners must have a strong sense of patience to compensate for a stubborn couple so that things that are not desired occur.
Having a stubborn partner in educating children is very unexpected because if we get into a fight in front of this child it will have a negative impact on children’s development. So we as partners need to do things like this:
It is best to give gentle advice to your partner and encourage your partner to reflect on his experience when he was a child and if treated like that. From this it can be expected that his mind can be opened that what he experienced in the past (which he now considers to be the best way to educate children) turns out to have a negative side.
Strengthen your partner with expert opinions about statements in educating the right child. This can open your partner’s insight and realize that he is not necessarily right.
Discuss together to find the best solution so that the couple does not feel wrong with the wrong decision. After getting the results together, give a hug a couple.
Help couples to fix themselves. That his opinion will still be heard / considered without him having to be stubborn.
That’s the way to overcome a couple who have a stubborn character. Hopefully useful.
