My step daughter went to the bathroom (bowel movement) and did not wash her hands. I reacted and told her firmly that I was going to be thinking about not taking her to get her ears pierced. My husband then comes in and tells me to not make it a big deal and not to yell at her like that. I'm seriously tired of his BS whenever it comes to this. How am I supposed to not react when she's TEN YEARS OLD and knows better? What would you all suggest I do?

It is hard to parent children when mother and father disagree. My husband and I have agreed to back off when one of us is disciplining our son. If we dont agree with something we are saying to him or how we react to something, we save it for when we are alone. Then we talk to eachother about how each one of us would react to it and why we feel it is important to react or just let it go. Compromise and understand eachother. I would have done the same thing though. I would let my husband know why i feel its important to wash hands after going to the bath room and that i needed to do soemthing that would make an impact on him for him to remember next time. Parenting is soooo hard!! good luck, i think the key is compromising.
