I am watching Dr. Phil right now and they are talking about bratty kids and how to correct their behavior. The couple that is on there now is so one sided in their discipline. They showed a video clip and the dad looked at the mom all confused and the mom said “do you want me to spank him?” They talked with Dr. Phil about how the mom is the disciplinarian in the family.
Growing up for me I only remember my mom spanking me but that is just because she was the one that was home with us, they tell me my dad spanked us a few times but I don’t remember it. My dad still disciplined us however.
It seems like in a lot of families only one parent gives the discipline and I wonder if that is an issue. It seems that if one parent gets to be the good cop in the relationship with their child they will look better to the child.
I hope that Stefan and I can agree on what we will do for discipline and both do what needs to be done instead of letting the other take care of if. Whether it is spanking, time outs, grounding, revoked privileges or whatever works for each child.
How do you discipline your kids? Is it a good cop bad cop situation in your family? Who are you in that situation? Comment below.
