How to be a team with your husband and being consistent with the your children/

I have a problem with my husband and having being consistent. He is the good guy and i am the bad guy. His family is brought up on the children running around and sceaming at all functions. I was brought up to respect people and play in the rooms not like crazy kids. What can I say to make my husband understand that, or am I wrong to want my children to behave, expecially in public. I don't believe in when we go to a store and not disapling my children because if I do they will scream and make a sceen. I will count to three and I get to three, and then I either with take her to the car or take her to the bathroom. I am old school and believe in spankings but they do not bother my three year old. Or maybe they are not that hard. I believe in scaring them with spankins not hurting them. When I put her in a corner, she never sits there she has to define me and move two feet away. What should I do?

  • Kids can be kids, but there is a time and place for everything. You are the mom you have to teach them respect, manners. You are not wrong. My husband family was the same. I did put my foot down. I would just say my kids come first and they need to learn respect and manners. Only let them lose at his parents.
