  • I thought I would have been.. I have always been strict yet my daughter melts me. My hubby is not mean, he just doesnt always give her whatever she wants in his hands and he doenst always pick her up 24/7.. she is going through the want, want want stage and he will give in eventually where as I give in straight away. lol

  • It depends on what the kids are doing. Some things bother me more and some things bother him more.

  • I am the one who stands my ground so I'm gonna say me. Daddy gives in way too easy!

  • I always thought I'd be the hard ass parent, but DH is. I'm good about being consistent, but I have to remind DH not to call DS a bad boy when he misbehaves, and DH tends to double time-out time when it's a repeat offense. I am more patient.

  • Well, I'm home more than he is so I do most of the limit-setting and disciplining. I guess I'd have to say that I am.

  • Well, my husband works all the time, so Me. I don't think of it being mean. I am keeping my kids safe, and teaching them right from wrong.
