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.
