  • Me. My husband didn't realize how TV and the radio can cause a lot of problems with children. He does now. I won't stand for it. No crap TV and no crap music. He can listen to that when our daughter isn't there.

  • I am!! My daughter just hit my husband in the face and he didn't do anything. She got a long time out and was told not to do that again. She got smart with me and got time out again. He will let her do what ever she wants and doesn't punish her. NOT M!

  • It's split, depending on who's home and who is busier at the moment. I'm much gentler than my dh, but I can be because I'm firm and they know I mean what I say. He's a lot of bark and very little bite.

  • Mainly me but my husband does a good share as well. He mainly focuses on our oldest cuz he listens better to my husband.

  • It's mostly split, but I'm probably the more authoritative parent...
