  • stand stong, it helps when they are older to know, you won't back down. My kids know, when I say NO, don't even start whining. They are now 17, 12 and 10. I've left the store without anything, just left because of thier arguement, we've pulled over on the side of the road many times, to just sit there until the arguements were done. Giving him that Mom look, you know the one and let him learn it now.

  • sorry. Some kids need teh same rules in both houses it can't be seperate rules you are both raising the same child so it needs to be the same so they don't get confused as it already sounds he is .
