I am no longer a "single mom" - yea :o) But, my finace and I have very different views on disciplining my 9 yr old son. We come from 2 very different upbringings - mine was very comfy, suburbia, catholic school, sports and supportive parents. His was quite the opposite! Family of all boys, dad was non-existant, mom was the one who cracked the whip!
This is such a hard thing to handle. He's says I'm too soft - I say he's too hard....Any advice on how to handle a hard headed man (who has raised a son of his own already) and help him realize all kids are very different as much as they are all the same.... My heart is so heavy.
