Yes. My step sister may make money hand over fist but she hardly takes care of the child she payed an arm and a leg to conceive through invitro. Our parents have her daughter a lot, or she is with her dad.
I don't think we are so much different in parenting styles, but my dh has a lot of input in the parenting in our family. I imagine it's the same for my siblings and their so's. I like my neices and nephews alot so I guess they aren't doing it wrong!
I see differences, and I think I am better at SOME things, but my sisters are also better at other things. I don't see parenting as a competition, though.
im a better parent than hubbys sister her girls got taken away because she chose to stay with the jerk that that was abuseing them
We are good parents. We help each other. We parent differently. but it works. For example, my brother was spanking his son for having nighttime accidents. I told him that it will only make him worse and what our other brother had said to me and did to me and how it still affects me. I had wet the bed for YEARS. We tried medication, limiting my liquid intake, EVERYTHING. Nothing worked and he made me feel like shit. After I told my brother about that, he talked to his son about it and he has been accident free for years now. It was a slap in his face that he was doing to his son what our brother had done to me.
My sister has told me when I am doing something she doesn't agree on. I've told her the same things.
We are open with each other so it works for us.
my sister's and I are like night and day when it comes to parenting! AM i better yes BUT WE BOTH LOVE OUR CHILDREN IMMENSLY
