How do you deal with having a very different parenting style to your partner?

This is tough. My advice would be to identify what are the things that you find most important and be clear on those with your partner. The rest you both have to compromise. At the end of the day though if it's not something very serious (abuse etc) then it's really all about compromise as you're both in it together. What's very important though is that you don't have an argument/discussion about it anywhere near your kids. They'll pick up it and use it to their advantage. Kids are clever!
