My hubby has a tendency to spoil the girls rotten. His daughters’ wishes are always his command and he hardly ever says ‘no’ to them. He is a yes-man when it comes to his 3 princesses. Oh, how I wish he too is a yes-man to me…. but dream on! Anyway, Alycia and Sher have now taken advantage of their daddy’s leniency and yes-man attitude towards them that they will ask him for everything under the sky whenever I am not around! They are like rats when the cat is away! I am always the bad guy when it comes to disciplining the girls and the one tightening the pockets. Daddy hardly scolds them. In fact, I will be the one being chastised when his princesses are being reprimanded by me. Fair or not you say? Angry or not you say?
And I just hate it when Alycia and Sherilyn tell me this whenever I discipline or forbid them in doing something…. “Hmmmph, I’ll tell daddy you don’t want to give me (this and that)” or “Hmmmph, I’ll tell daddy not to bring you out” or “Nevermind, I’ll tell daddy to give me” or “Hmmmph, I’ll tell daddy to scold you” …. in a tone that’s meant to threaten me! This happens all the time whenever they (especially Sherilyn) are being reprimanded by me. With 2 toddlers constantly challenging me physically and mentally and a baby who is practically breaking my back everyday, I don’t even need the best diet pills to help me loose weight.
Who’s the bad guy when it comes to disciplining your kids at home? Is it you or your hubby? Do your kids ever say “I’ll tell daddy….. (this and that)” to you, in a tone that’s meant to threaten you?
