Mummy Vs Daddy

I'm Mummy & he's Daddy and as much as we love each other and respect that we are both different people with different opinions when it comes to parenting our Son , our parenting skills can often clash. The whole Mummy Vs Daddy came to light on two different occasions this week.

Oli's hair is at the point where it could probably do with a trim , I know this but I just cant bare for his little curls to be just chopped off. It doesn't look a mess so it can carry on growing.
Daddy disagrees , he thinks Oli's growing a mullet and keeps threatening to trim it when I'm not around. Safe to say I've not left him alone with him to give him the chance to snip away but then I don't think he would be stupid enough to go against my wishes , after all I grew him for 9months so I should have the final say on something such as the first time he has his hair cut.

We also had a disagreement with how to deal with a tantrum Oli pulled , he was so upset and it upset me to see him in such a crying state so naturally I wanted to just hug him and help him calm down. Daddy wanted me to just leave him alone and let Oli deal with by himself , I ignored Daddy and carried on using my method. It wasn't about getting one over on the other one we just both wanted to do what's best by our child.

What do you do when you disagree with your other half? Has there been one certain area/issue which you've disagreed on?
