My daughter is 6 and she ALWAYS has her way. My husband is spoiling her and he can't see it. He always let her have her way- it what she wants, play as much as she wants, go to bed any time she wants. Her wish is his command! She also gets away with anything! Whatever she does dh says "never mind, she's just a kid". And when I punish her or yell at her he always says, in a calm way, "calm down girls, no yelling in this house". He also buys her new stuff EVERY DAY! Clothes, toys... Whatever she wants!
She's really a spoilt kid, one of those no relative wants to babysit or visit. And he just can't see it! I don't want her to grow up and think life is like that cause it's not.

Wow. This does not make a good situation at all, because it also seems like there is some jealousy on your part as well. You all need to seek some family counseling and fast. He is creating a very bad environment for both you and your daugher. Hostility is not much fun to live in.
