How do you handle discipline issues when you were raised differently? I was raised actually being punished by my parents. We would get put in the corner, kneeling down for like 30 minutes when we got into trouble. DH was raised with nothing like that at all. They'd get yelled at...but that's about it. He never knew what it meant to be grounded or have things taken away from you when you got into trouble. When I try and do something like that with DD, he tells me I'm taking it too far and will unground her or undo whatever punishment I hand out. He very nearly wanted to slap me when I put her in the corner because she was talking back to me. How do I get him to understand, just because he wasn't raised that way, doesn't mean it's wrong?

My husband and I were raised completely different. We discussed children before marriage but the reality of a child 4 years later was very different. We have learned to compromise and listen to each other. Not always easy but that is how marriage is. My son knows mom and dad are united so if I say no to something dad will say no too. We back each other up and if we do disagree we will discuss it away from our son.
