  • It does not happen. We run a strict home such that our daughters know that such behaviour is not tolerated .

  • My children don't bad mouth their father, my husband.

  • It really depends on what triggered the issue on how I handle it.

  • My husband (their father) handled that when it happened (VERY RARELY...once for our now 24yo, none for our now 23yo, once for our now 20yo and none for our now 19yo) and then I backed him up....and enforced their groundings when he was at work. Ditto for the ONE time that one of my sons (now 20yo) decided to show me disrespect....I took care of it and my husband backed me up.
