My husband was upset cause I wasn't 'fair' to the kids. After dinner the older kids (5) wanted to go outside. But I had to still clean the kitchen and had laundry to fold and couldn't sit outside for an hour watching kids. My dh was working on a project in the garage that he had to get done tonight since he started it. So I decided that the older kids could go outside since they need minimual supervision and the back door to the house and garage would be open. But I couldn't let my 18mth old outside cause she needs constant supervision and I couldn't give that. When the older kids went she was really upset she ccouldn't. Well I decided she could watch an episode of yo gabba gabba. They only get an hour of tv in the morning so this is special. Well when I turned it on the older kids then wanted to watch, I told them no that they had to play outside now. My dh thinks this is unfair since 'I didn't give them an option'. But it wasn't an option at the time I did it especially for her because she wasn't able to go outdide where they did. Was I being unfair?
