Who do your child get away with thing from?

My dd knows thats she can get away with things from daddy, and she uses it for what she can and she is only 20 months old...2 nights in a row we tried to put her to bed at 8 pm and she wouldent hear of it. she wanted back up and guess who let her up...thats right daddy did...but tonight daddy is working and mommy put her to bed and i havent heard a sound from her since i put her to bed :)

So i would say she gets away with stuff if daddy is around!

  • Talk it over and agree on your rules and what is/is not allowed. As she gets older she will get away with much worse behavior if one of you allows it.

  • With my kids they know that if Grandma is around then they can get away with just about anything. What can I say though because it's Grandma's job to spoil them.

  • My husband is more of the pushover. Especially if the kids are throwing a fit in time out.
    He's better then he used to be, but still the same.

  • Her grandparents and it drives me crazy. She rules the roost while she's over there and then comes home expecting me to roll out the red carpet for her.

  • Me. My son , when i tell him to do something, will take his time, or huff and puff or give me lip. When my husband ask him to do something, he jumps so fast. i dont know, maybe he fears his dad and not me.

  • My mother allows my two boys to do whatever they want! I get upset at times because she undermines me!! And my dh is too strict, so he probably feels this way about me!
