Who is the disciplinarian in your house?

You or some one else? If someone else, who? In today's age of blended families and many other possible combinations, I could not begin to list them all. ;)

Bonus Question:
For parents with older children (10 - 18), has the disciplinarian ever changed and if so, why?

  • My husband and I try to share the disciplinary role, but it is hard... I think he is more strict than I am at times, but other times he is way too lax. I don't know... We are still trying to figure this whole discipline thing out. Our daughter is 2.5, so I think we still have time to figure out our roles and how to play off of one another.

  • I stay at home with my 2 young kiddos so I am the main one during the day. When hubby is home is hard to step back and let him without adding mine in there because I'm so used to doing it. But I'm learning to let him do his thing when he is here and let him be the man of the house. So I guess both in most ways.

  • My dh is closer to the "disciplinarian" by definition of the household but I am with our daughter more and my approach is to explain things to her and time outs when needed which she responds better to.

  • Def the husband. He was a SAHD for several years and now the tables have turned but he is still in charge when we are both home.
