When one parent is positive and one is not so much...
Even before my son was born my husband had this whole, "You do know I'm going to spank this kid if he needs it, right??" attitude. It bothered me because, while I wasn't fully AGAINST spanking at the time I don't think people need to go into parenting assuming every kid is going to need to be spanked all the time. His whole family is this way and it drives me insane. (For the record his brother was spanked CONSTANTLY growing up and he's an absolute mess.)
Even as a joke my husband will say probably 20 times a day, "Come here so I can spank you!" It's gotten to the point where my son will start crying and run from him. He won't let him lie down with him at night - which is making it extra hard on me because I'm the only one who can get him to sleep.
Whenever I try to make suggestions dh takes it as me trying to control his parenting. I'm at a loss. My son is really smart and outgoing. He's two, so some of his acting out right now is normal, but I don't want anything to change his beautiful personality. Any ideas how to approach this with the hub? Thanks, girls!!
