People in a child support or child custody situation in Maryland know that the saying "nothing lasts forever" is true when it comes to raising children. Unfortunately, for many parents, this saying applies particularly when it comes to developing and sticking to a parenting plan. Many parents, even those who have a relatively good and open means of communication with the other parent, are bound to disagree on how to raise the children at some point; when these disagreements occur, it's important to make sure that they are resolved quickly and reasonably.
As a child grows, his or her needs change and it is up to the parents to provide the child with an environment and activities in which they can continue to develop healthy interests and behaviors. Reasonable people can differ on how to do this, which is why parenting is such a fertile ground for disagreements. Choosing extracurricular activities, sports, and even friends are things that parents may have some control over, not to mention other issues like whether to let the child get a cell phone or eventually a car of his or her own. These issues can all be stumbling blocks, especially for parents who are prone to arguments.
