My daughters listen to me but not mom
My wife and I have 2 daughters ages 4 and 2.
I think the girls listen to me more then they do my wife. When Mom tries to disipline it just ends in my wife yelling and nothing getting accomplished except more stress for the both of us. I dont want to step in and undermind her. It is hard for me to watch the girls completely ignore anything my wife says though.
If i bring up ideas for help my wife with getting the kids to listen she just shuts the doors and says i think she is a bad parent. This is not the case at all. i am getting ready to leave for a few months for work and i dont want her to stress out so much. Does anyone have any advice on things we can do together to build a level of authority for her?
