No I am not saying they should obey the husband what I am saying is that it is far more important to have agreement on faith than something as trivial as bedtime. Also, I would imagine that the child would follow whoever gave them more of what they want and then let the parents fight it out.
Liz said:Well, I hope we'd agree beforehand on a bedtime - but if not, I think it would have to be whoever said it first - it's only fair to a child to go with the first response to a question, and also, you shouldn't encourage children to go asking mum something when dad's already answered, or vice-versa.ICXCNIKA said:I am glad you brought up house rules. It is obvious that our faiths are very different which maybe why we are not having a meeting of the minds. What would happen if you told your child they had to go to bed at 9PM and your husband said they could go to bed when they wanted... who would the child follow?
Are you saying you think they should automatically obey my husband before me?
