Our parenting techniques are so different.

I love my SO. Don't get me wrong. But his ideas of parenting piss me off. It may be because his ideas are different than mine, I'll admit. But the things he says he wants to do are way different than what I'm thinking that I wanna do.

For instance, today, he said that if Shane does something wrong, he will spank him in order to discipline him. I am completely against spanking. I told him "Yeah, teach him that it's okay to hit people if they make a mistake or do something wrong." He said "No, it's going to teach him not to do whatever he did, again."

He also said that he's going to be laid back with soda. I'd rather not let him have soda until he's at least 8 or 9 (un-caffienated soda, like Sierra Mist).

And, since he works at McDonalds, he said he'd be bringing home Happy Meals for DS when he gets older. When I said "Don't complain when he gets fat" he said "Well, Happy Meals come with apple slices now!"... Yeah, along with the fatty cheeseburger. 

Ugh. I love the shit out of him, but he irritates me.

You would allow him to spank your child?

LOL, he works at McDonalds and this is ok with you? You need to raise your standards.

You guys need to meet in the middle. IT can be done.

Well, it's his child too. If he wants to be the one to spank him, then fine. He'll be the one allowing our DS to grow up knowing that daddy was mean and mommy was nice.

How old is your child?



Dh and I had these conversations long before ttc, so we've always been on the same page.



Sounds like a lot if conversations are in order...

Didn't you think to have this type of conversation with him BEFORE getting knocked up? I couldn't have a baby with someone who had such different values as I do.

Oh sorry. I fell in love with him & who he is. Not where he works.

Stop being so shallow and ignorant.
