Really? The FATHER should lead on discipline? Seriously, isn't your parenting relationship EQUAL? As in EQUALLY responsible for discipline.

In my house, I am the one that leads on discipline - you ask the kids. My daughter actually told me that mum is scarier than dad (and now, I don't yell and I don't spank). Why would that be? Because I am the one who is consistent, but my husband is on the SAME page and will always uphold and follow through. We have actual communication. But if he had to lead the discipline, our kids would be feral.

I suggest you find a better way to discipline your children, preferably a way that doesn't include abuse and assault.

Finding a compromise that does not include assaulting your children is the best approach. You can absolutely have stern discipline w/out any corporal punishment.

How old are your kids? Old enough to understand your native language? If so, it is time to put better parenting tools to use. Conversation, consequences, and consistency work so much better than assaulting your children.
