You or hubby? Who is better at it?
We both do but, I am don't work outside the home so, it's usually me. I'm better at it because I know what works for each kid. Dh sees discipline as one way across the board, that at least in my house doesn't work.
We are a united team and back eachother up and talk in private about anything we dont see eye to eye on until we quietly reach a compromise or agreement THEN present our decision to the kids. They always knew they couldnt divide us on such things.
I did more of it bc he worked a lot of hours and I was a full time sahm. ALso I literally studied a lot of positive discipline and positive reinforcement methods and took courses and read books and all kinds of things so knew a lot more. Todd was more old school. Todd was stricter by nature and I was more liberal and open but he saw the good results I got so supported my methods over how he would have done it had I not been there. If the kids complained about their consequences he was sure to let them know honestly what HE wanted their consequences to be and that they only got what they got thanks to me so they should count their lucky stars, that usually hushed them up. lol
