Often my fiance diciplines his son, and his son listens very well. He tells me to dicipline my children, and I am working hard at it, but some things I don't think that should be punished for. He gets upset with me if I point out things that he does that I don't agree with and he tells me constantly that my kid is manipulating me, and a liar, and controlling and it affects the other kids. I get defensive when he says these things as I feel like his son is the same way, if I give him examples he will say his son is not, or he is doing it because of my daugher and I let her get away with so much.
I love him, but I am scared this whole parenting thing is going to ruin us. He says he is just concerned for her behavior and wants her to have friends and good relationships. We do go to counsaling and we do communicate about this subject often with out the kids present.
I have been seeking advise and sometimes I feel like it is his way or no way, and I have voiced this to him and he says how do you figure we talk about it and we agree, a lot of times I agree becasue I feel like if the more the conversation goes on the more defensive I get.... I just see his kids doing the same thing mine do, but they are smart and don't do it in front of him like my kids do.
