The attitude talk... how it went.
A few days ago I posted on ggeneral discussion forum about SD3's attitude. Here's the link if you didn'tread it and would like to ccatch up... http://www.steptalk.org/node/173153
I talked to FDH about how he handles it vs how I handle it... Let'sjust say iit didn't go over too well. Rather than hearing me out about if we don't nip this in the butt and show SD that its not okay to talk to adults the way she has he made excuses for her... 'It's just a phase.' 'She's only 3.'... Blah blah blah.
Then the conversation switched from how to take care of SD'S attitude to how much I let BD1's short comings slide... It just irritates me because FDH says SD is still a baby, and BD is no longer a baby... The two girls are roughly 16mo apart, so of course I'm going to get a little defensive. If you consider SD to still be a baby, the BD is still a baby too...
After FDH started picking at things I did wrong with the children I stopped listening, and talking... I'm sure its a topic that will come up again, and I will try to be better prepared for his excuses.
