  • No. But sounds like you married the wrong man.

    Your job IS to be mean mommy. If you're not the meanest mommy in the world a dozen times daily7 you're doing it wrong.

  • I'd leave or threaten to leave if he doesn't show you respect. You cant' let your kids be raised that way. He is playing them against you and they won't have any respect because of him. He sounds like a jerk, but I don't know. I do know that you need to take care of your kids, they might get mad to start with but they'll get over it and when they are older they will understand. Just do what is best for you and your kids.

  • GDIAMANTE is right. You are doing your job, don't stop doing what you do.

  • Of course it's hard to be romantic with someone who doesn't respect you and back you in the job you do as a mom. Seek counseling with him.

  • he would jus make me look like the bad guy in counciling hes good for that ...he reminds him self of how of a good guy he is and any woman would take him...he can be a good guy when he wants but plays the jerk role more than the nice guy and i aint feeling it no more

  • u dont have to stay with him just bc u have kids especially if its not a good environment for them

  • Oh hell no ur not! he sounds like an ass. Kids can't be raised that way. Try telling him that and explaining that wile he may com off as the " good daddy" now he's damaging u and ur daughter's relationship. If he doesn't stop tell him if he doesn't start respecting u as a parent u'll leave and take ur daughter with u then he can be the "good daddy" every other weekend!

  • Parents should work on a unified front so as not to confuse a child. He' s not doing her any favors by saying things like he says.

  • This dicrepancy between you too is only affecting your kids, seek counseling.
