I would say its more me too, simply because I'm at home with them and DH is at work. Also DH isnt very good at following through his 'threats' and gives too many warnings :roll:

Me 8-) But then when Ben is older / needs discipline I would have to say it will be 34% me, 33% daddy, 33% other children - oh yes they know the rules and tell each other off and discipline each other under my watchful eye :roll:

Depends what you mean by 'discipline' as we don't do punishments at all but we will go off on one at stuff that we don't like them doing, iyswim. Totally individual on a case-by-case basis depending what frame of mine we're all in.

Usually me because I am with the kids more than DH, but we do present a united front with regard to what is ok/not. There have been times when I am at the end of my tether and threatened the old fashioned 'wait til your father gets home', which I loathe doing as I feel that I should be able to handle it all on my own, but it does seem to do the trick as DH can be scary (pretending to be of course)!

I would say 50/50. Mark is better at it than me actually. He gets alot of practice at school and has a very good authoritative voice iykwim. He was the first one to try out the naughty step and we were both actually very surprised when it worked but that is our main "punishment" now.
