My husband and I have a disagreement about this constantly... so I need help! I have a 2 year old daughter and when she listens to what I ask her to do, such as pick up something, I thank her. My husband says I shouldn't do that, that she should just do it because that's what she's supposed to do, she shouldn't be congratulated for it. What do yall think? Am I sending the wrong message, or is he??? Thanks for the help!

I try to treat my children the way I treat anyone else. Not saying thank you to someone that has done something for you is considered rude and disrespectful and I don't want to be rude and disrespectful to my children. You're leading by example, which is wonderful. How can I expect my LO's to be respectful to me and anyone else if I'm not respectful to them? I think if you did it your husbands way, you would stunt your child and they would be more inclined to not have as good of manners.
