My husband and I are having difficulties agreeing on things when it come to the kids. For instance, when at the dinner table at my parent's house last night, my 5 year old was finished and started climbing on my husband's chair. The rest of us were still eating. I asked her to get down and to sit on her bottom but my husband kept playing with her so I asked again. Then my sister and my husband said I need to stop being so controlling and that she is a kid and that she is fine, we are not in a restaurant, etc.
I am trying to teach my girls manners and to sit down at the table. I am finding it hard for us to agree on certain ways to handle the kids. He thinks, they are just kids, not little adults like you are trying to make them be. I am trying to have boundaries and rules. I was thinking of trying to find a parenting counselor. Any one have any advise on this topic?
