Transcription: 
How can you disagree with your parents are in-laws about parenting your children? In my perspective, the most important thing about raising your children is your communication and agreement with your partner. Your partner and you are the ones that are going to raise the kids in the way that feels right for you guys. I think it is really important for you to be able to communicate with your partner and figure out how to deal with your children, but also how to deal with external forces that may interfere with the way you are raising your children. Those external forces can include in-laws, your own parents, sometimes even professionals who have an agenda in how you raise your kids. The ability to communicate and decide the values, the morals, the beliefs of how you want your children to be raises are key in being on the same page with your partner, so that you guys can raise your kids in the way that feels right for you.
