Quoting Mama MacGyver*:" Have you talked to him about it? He may genuinely think he is demonstrating good parenting skills. I ... [snip!] ... way. It needed to be explained. It was difficult for him to hear, but it did need to be said and it eventually got easier."I tried to talk today and he jumped down my throat and argued with everything i said.
Quoting OmegaDucks!:" She's your child so you have all the say. Your way has worked this long and she is a great kid. All kids test limits, its in their nature. Micromanaging will only make her feel overwhelmed."
Quoting TantricLemons:" I tried to talk today and he jumped down my throat and argued with everything i said."He had the balls to argue with you on how to discipline YOUR kid? Yikes. That is not his say. I would be livid. He's in for quite a surprise when his daughter hits that age. Luckily it's not too far away, hopefully he will learn. He is a new father, new parents are always more uptight. As the kids get older, parents generally relax more and since he will grow with your guys new baby, he will start to understand more, hopefully.
