Do any of you have discipline issues that you work on with the X? My dss is a normal 5 year old boy with quite normal behavioral development. Dh & I addressed bad behavior since he started visiting us and so it really hasn't been that an issue for us. However, his X won't discipline then snap and take away toys and tv for a week, which usually we are asked to reinforce since the first time she did it he said "Well, I'll just watch it at Daddy and ... house". Of course, we always support her to a degree but usually have her call him and end it earlier than she intended b/c a week long discipline seems like more than a fair for a 3 yr. old, now 5 year old.
Of course, this only comes up rarely, because most of the time she lets him slide. For a while, every time dh called he was crying b/c he wanted this or that. And when he is sick, she can tell he is feeling better when he has a little bit more of his attitude when he talks to her. (her words). Fortunately, she has started thinking seriously about it lately and has come up with a better plan that hopefully she'll be consistent with. It just makes me really nervous for when he is older.
Anyway, I was just curious about other blended families do?
