  • Not really, although my husband methods of discipline are a lot different than mine. His answer to everything is "spank them" and while I think that may work in some cases, it certainly doesn't work in all of them and it's not a blanket answer to getting your children to behave.

  • My husband and I were pretty much on the same page when ours were growing up, although he tended to put up with a lot less than I did and was much sterner with them than was I. But guess which one they all tend to be more like? Yep, their dear sweet Daddy.
