One of the things I really enjoy about Langa when it comes to disciplining our young ones is that he is faithfully on my side.
My husband and daughter are super close, so whenever I have a ‘discipline encounter’ (lol!) with her (we haven’t quite gotten there with Hubo yet), she’ll run to him for comfort, but he faithfully sends her back packing to apologise, correct her behaviour, do what I’m instructing her to do, etc.
It’s great because I always feel supported, it makes me feel like less of a monster 😐 and it leaves no room for the ‘soft parent’ ? (although I do think in Kumi’s eyes I’m the tough parent, even though Langa will argue that I’m soft ?)
