When you and your partner have children, undoubtedly, there will be differences in how each person was raised. How you were raised will have an effect on how you raise your own children, and the way your partner was raised will effect how your own children will grow up. One of the things that will come up is the issue of sleep overs. Some parents are fine with them and others have a lot of anxiety about them, because they aren’t going to be with their children to care for them.
- There is a difference in parental views on sleepovers if the relationship is mono cultural versus multicultural. The former does not consider the possibility of differing views.
- There is often a stark view on sleep overs across cultures which encourage them while others forbid them.
- Multicultural parental relationships will have to deal with added issues of compromise on a host of seemingly normal situations.
“Compatibility of social standards is no longer a given if your partner’s background is different from yours, which leads to a lot of discussions about seemingly basic things.”
