I Am a Mother

Notifications: · Newest First
My kids call my wife, mom. While they call me, mama.
I’m pretty sure, that’s because I’m the less strict parent, and me and my wife are always arguing because she swears I try to be their “friend”
No, I just take the more calm approach when dealing with them, while she immediately jumps to yelling.
And believe me, the calm approach works a lot better, than screaming at them.
The kids, trust me a lot more, or are at least more comfortable telling me when things happen, than her, because I don’t yell, or get mad easily.
But my wife, does have a point, when she says I cannot discipline, because I seriously can’t.

We are very different when it comes to parenting, but I mean, they are not dead or criminals, so we must be doing something right 😂

Parenting is a balance, I think, assuming there are two of you. (I suppose there are at least three of you in your situation.) In this case I think it's a balance between the "good cop, bad cop" approach sometimes, and the "united front" in others. 🤷‍♂️
