I have 5 year old and 11 month old boys and a 3 year old (4 in May) girl. My husband has been a stay at home dad since my oldest was born and it has worked great for us... except for this. He disciplines my 5 year just fine, makes him mind, doesn't let him run wild but they still have fun.
Ugh.. but my little girl. He swears she is fine all day, but he just tunes it out and give her what she wants. She wants juice, he says no, she gets all whiney, he give in. It's clean up time, he says to clean up, and she sits in the playroom and TELLS my 5 year old she is tired and he needs to pick up her toys for her, and he does. My husband hides his face when she pouts because he thinks she's so cute he can't not smile.
I know, not the biggest deal, but it worries me the most that he doesn't see it. I need a good book or something, I don't think he realizes how important his relationship and interaction with her really is.
