My girlfriend has a 3 yr old and i have a 2 yr old, we rarely get the boys together only because our schedules are opposite. well today we got together wth the boys and after he son was acting out she was yelling at him and he said to her "i dont like you" instead of time outs she lightly smacks him but i dont think its working to her favor. and he talks like a 10 yr old becuase she says " i dont baby him, i never did" well i dont mind being around her and her son when im alone but when my son is around he gets quiet and then starts to act out. ever since we left he has been hitting and throwing things. how do i bring them around each other without jeopordizing all the work ive put into maintaining the balance in our lives and the work i have done with time outs and my method of discipliningAnswer Question

I had this exact issue.
I ended the playdates. We would still get together once and a while for girls night out but those too faded away. It was too bad because we would spend 2-3 days a week at the playground in the beginning. But I HAD to put my child first.
Our girls are now 15 and I am soooooo glad I ended it when they were little her inability to parent has made her teen VERY difficult... mine is still on track. Im sooooo glad I did what I did. Some may have seen it as cold... but tough patooties... I have a great kid hers is giving her grief.
