What’s The Scenario: Different House, Different Rules

Lamont didn’t know what to do. After splitting with his son’s mother they decided to establish a schedule that would allow him to get his 9-year-old son Jason every weekend. After several months of this arrangement, Lamont began to notice a difference in his son’s attitude. 

During his time with him, he focused on teaching certain life lessons that his son would need to become a better person. Cleaning up after yourself, getting enough sleep at night, being respectful to adults were just a couple of the things they worked on. Lamont spoke to his son’s mother about focusing on these same things at her home but he could tell she wasn’t committed to the idea like he was.

Lamont felt his son preferred being at his mother’s house becuase the rules were much more relaxed. All of this was confusing to Lamont becuase when he lived with his son’s mother, even though it was a short period of time, it seemed as if there thinking was in alignment with one another. Now he knows that wasn’t the case. However, he doesn’t want his son to suffer because they are not able to get on the same page.

How would you recommend Lamont handle this situation?
