I have a fairly new large blended family with 6 kids (5 boys, 1 girl). My fiancee and I have too different parenting styles. Mine is structure and discipline, but not overbearing. His is cream puff oblivious, bury head in sand, be their friend and no responsibility or accountability. Guess who ends up teaching his kids right from wrong, cleaning up all the time and sounding like the "bad guy" and exhausted. Kids naturally don't want rules/responsibility so I have turned into a nag and that it so not like me!:) Any suggestions from a large family who had different parenting styles and how they made it work?
