Why are you not allowed to parent and punish a child in your house?

Here we co-parent even though we are not both bio-parents of all three kids. I can punish Robert just as well as Jonah can as well as tell him what he can and can't do.

Jonah has the same rights as well.

We are a parenting team. I fully believe that if a child knows that you can't do anything when they are misbehaving, they will run all over you. Your DSD will not respect you until you have some type of authority over her and she realizes that.

My point about authority is one night Robert got very mad at me over something. He sat down in the middle of the kitchen floor, crossed his arms, looked up at me and said, "I'm not taking a shower!" I put on my mom voice, looked at him and said "Sean is bigger than you, he will pick you up and put you in the shower and bathe you!" He got his tail up off the floor and ran to the bathroom and took a shower.

You have to let her know you mean business and will not put up with her nonsense.

Thank you JMC1988 for my siggy!
