Who is more strict with your kids, you or your DH/SO?

Does someone always end up being the bad guy?

We both pretty much adhere to the same rules however, I don't mess around, SO will give them more chances then I do. When I say something, I mean business.

well probably me but only because i'm with them the vast majority of the time.  when we are together dh and i are pretty much on the same page as far as the things we allow and we are pretty laid back in that regard.  i tend to be the bad guy only cuz my tolerance is much lower from being with them all the time.

We parent almost exactly the same, actually. He's a little more laid back about what he allows sometimes, but we almost always have each others' back with the choices that we make.

We both are pretty much the same when it comes to what we allow and what we don't. However, I tend to be a little more of the bad guy because I will only allow things to go so far. My husband tends to be a little more laid back than I am
