English term or phrase:to allow someone to pit someone against another
On a document describing parents' method of child discipline and ways that the children are raised at home:
"Both parents feel that the rules of the house need to be clearly stated. There needs to be structure and boundaries set. They also believe that parents must work together and not allow their children to pit one [parent] against the other."
I'm having trouble with the entire phrase "...not allow...against the other."
