Sometimes the helpful encouragement of a father who has learned the L&L techniques can push a family in the right direction. Here's a nice reflection on how fathers can really help when BOTH parents can lend a hand as we parent.
I love having us on the same parenting page! Less stress! Love him for being such a hands on dad! This has given him so much parenting confidence.
Here's his story:
I am redoing our twin's room and let the girls pick out fabric and I would make the bedding.
When I was done, one of our girls regretted her fabric choice.
When I told my hubby I was going to start one bedding over he says: "She's buying the next fabric, right?"
I was so thrilled that he's on board that, of course, I said "yes!" even though I wasn't planning on charging her.
My kids are so used to this technique that my daughter didn't even flinch when I told her she had to work to earn her new fabric.
Yeah for this dad! He was thoughtful and could see that the natural consequence that mom had missed was for their daughter to pay for the fabric. Brilliant! Another pair of eyes and ears in the house. Yeah! Go dad!
