Dads Excuses for teenage daughters
I have two teen SD and mostly they are decent kids. However, my husband makes excuses for them ALL the time and rarely punishes them. In his mind it's okay if SD17 is WAY to serious with her boyfriend because she has a 4.0 GPA and doesn't drink. And it's also okay for SD14 to disobey house rules, forget (just not do or half ass) her chores, mouth off, etc. and just get a good stern lecture. SD14 is the epitome of disrespectful I am exhausted with it. My husband refuses to give his daughters consequences and/or any punishments. I am tired of ALWAYS being stuck in the "bitch" role. I also have three kids of my own in this house and they are MADE to listen, do chores, follow the rules, and be respectful. I always support my husband and do not contradict or second guess him or make excuses for my kids. I do not know how to raise kids that do not get held accountable for their actions. And I am so tired of arguing with my husband about his perfect little darlings who are FAR from. My husband is SO naive, and had no clue what teenage girls do behind their parents back. I have busted SD17 numerous time breaking curfew and the "boyfriend" rules but he still think all is great because she is 17 and not pregnant. Is that really the parenting stand we are taking these day??!! It's appalling. I LOVE my husband but I am absolutely lost!
