So my dh is 28 and is so worried about being accepted by his 12 year old daughter, that he lets her get away with everything! She has lived with us now for 5 years, and now is a spoiled brat. She walks all over him, is rude and disrepectful, and feels entitled to her way all the time. Dh says that he already feels older than he is, and being cool with things has helped thier relationship and he doesn't want to push her away and make her hate him by disciplining her.
Well I think he has finally realized what a brat she has grown into, and says maybe he was wrong, especially now that she is in the stage to start liking boys and thinking she can go out on dates and so forth.
So how do you go about setting rules and conseqences for a child that has never had any? And how do you make sure she knows you mean business, and what can I do to help back dh up and make sure he doesn't fall back into letting her rule the house?
