I also have another suggestion. Since the kids are both teenagers if I were you I would stay out of the disciplinarian role as much as possible. Teenagers can be hard enough to deal don't need them thinking you are the bad guy and trying to cause rifts between you and dh to get their way.

Let DH be the bad guy and you be their "friend". I'm not saying you should not enforce the rules, but I think it needs to be approached as these are the rules and you are going to have to deal with your father if you don't follow them. And then dh needs to be consistant in his enforcing the rules and enforcing consequences for not following them.
