Listens to mommy or daddy?

Just wondering who your child listens to better... All my children obey daddy more than me. I can't get on to my 16 month all day and it won't bother him. All his daddy has to do is look at him? Whats up with that?

  • Probably me. My husband is a Marine and he works very long hours, so I'm definitely the primary care taker.

  • My son is the same way, OP. I'm with him all day && I will say the same thing 20 times. Daddy gets home, says it once && doesn't have to say it again for the rest of the night. It really irks the piss out of me....lol.

  • I am the same as you OP and hismommysince07. My DD just rolls her eyes at me but dosnt say a word when DH says the same thing. And hes not even her real dad! Hes her stepdad only as of June! I've been her mom for 2 years. Hes been her dad for a month (technically 8 if you wanna get technical from when he moved in with us). But my stepdaughter (7yo) is the complete opossite!
