This has always been the one thing that we butt heads over is parenting but allot of that is my fault because I hate to see my children upset however they do need discipline as they grow up.So for the past 6 months or so I have been on the same page with hubby and he also comprimises as well and things have been great, our son is even acting better now that mommy and daddy can agree on parenting lol.
However last night my 4 yr old son was attending The Little Gym and he pushed a little boy off the balance beam so I yelled at him that he needs to come out and that were going home after we had just had a talk with him 5 min befor for being too rough with another little girl. He did apoligize to the boy he pushed and did not get to play that evening just ate and went straight to bed.
I dont get it cause some days at that class he is the perfect child and goes in there and plays so nice and then some days hes so rough with everyone. I told my husband that him and my son are no longer aloud to rough house because thats where he gets it from. But my son is 4 yrs old and he understand that he cant play like that with everyone else cause we tell him time and time again but he keeps doing it.
So here is where hubby and I are not on the same page.... he says that our son is not going back that hes done with the class cause that was the worst he has done was pushing that kid off the balance beam which I totally agree with the last part cause he could have really hurt that kid and we told him that. So my husband sees it that he doesnt listen and so we have to take a more derastic move with him instead of just leaving class early he wants to teach him a lesson and totally take him out of it. I of coure want to give him another chance because I cant ever let him attend things bc he acts out sometimes, then he would be sitting at home all day long doing nothing. We cannot get refunded for the next two classes hes supposed to attend but maybe hubby is right maybe the consequences need to be more severe for our son to get it but that just sounds so mean to not let him go back cause he loves the teacher and hes not always acting up but it is getting to be every other class now that hes having trouble with. Help, I dont know what to do cause I know that as soon as hubby and I talk the argument is going to kick in if we cant agree on somthing. Is there a way for us to compromise this situation?
