Do you and your husband have the same parenting style/philosophy?

How do you work together and come to agreements on how to raise your kids?

  • It's because we have more faith than the average driver. Jesus is at the wheel and as you know he never learned how to drive before he was crucified.

  • He's more strict than I am, but we work together to discipline in a way that we are both comfortable with.

  • I'm more of a strict, less is more type, while he doesn't care about spoiling the kid and doesn't mind being walked all over but we usually come to an agreement somehow LOL.

  • My son is Autistic, so my husband expects me to take the lead in discipline and he follows suit. If I have to go someplace and my son cannot go with me, my husband will send him to the time out chair if he's unsure how to discipline. For the most part, our parenting styles are the same.

  • Yes. This is something that was discussed and agreed upon before we ever decided to have a child. Now granted over our (nearly ) 20 years of parenthood, we have needed to take another look at our original ideals/intentions and make changes. However, even those changes wer made together, with each others full agreement and cooperation.
