  • It does seem odd that he criticizes you for what he also does. Work on not doing them, since he doesn't like it. And tell him that you are working on it, so that he knows his opinion counts. In fact, this could be why he is critical. He sees you spending a lot more time with her and feels that he should assert some control since you have it all otherwise. Ask his opinion, maybe? So that he doesn't feel left out of the parenting?

  • Yep and there are 20 times more nice things you say and do to her for the one time you raise your voice. You might point it out to him that you actually have alot of patience. Men are so negative

  • It sounds like he's being very hypocritical. Maybe you should both try to work on alternative disciplining methods so that everyone will be happier. Regardless, that's not fair to you.
