I have an almost 3 year old adorable and highly energetic daughter. She stays 10 hrs in daycare as I work full time. Wakes up with me a 6 30 am and sleeps early.. My husband takes care of her by bathing, feeding and putting her to sleep while i cook and pack for next day. I am lucky to have no issues on that front. The tasks are well shared. The issue we have is difference in parenting styles. I am too soft to her, she doesnt listen to me. The only way I make her listen is by giving her gummy bears or hugs or toys. "Saying" alone doesnt work. I never physically hurt her. My husband on other hand has a military style of parenting. She fears him and just when he talks listens to him. He showers her with love, but is really tough when it comes to disciplining.. I feel bad for the poor child as she is not with us half the day and she needs cushion atleast in the few hrs she is with us..Also since one of us is too tough , i feel tht the other (me) should be there for her..otherwise she ll get too aloof.. My husband is pressurized as he alone has to put her to sleep or discipline her every single day. She is playful with me for everything.. I want to co-parent Dhrithi while not by being too stern with her. She is in her terrible twos - when we go out, she lies flat on grnd and cries..I try to distract..it works slowly.. As much as I get stressed about it, I wonder if hurting/ raising my voice against her will psychologically affect her.. If I were to summarize, I like american style of parenting and he likes asian. Me and my husband often argue on what s the right parenting style. Share your opinion on this topic. How do you discipline your child.
