absolutely he should do it and if it is not the usual routine then that is part of the punishment but no way should you do it.

And if DS doesn't like Daddy putting him to bed, then it's a double sanction, isn't it? Teach him not to be a pain!

He should put DS to bed, if he's fed up with him and issued the sanction. Saying, 'Right - you are going to bed, DS!' and then clapping your hands loudly for the handmaiden to take him away is a bit lordly, IMO.

Tough shit for the kids I'm afraid. Sound like they and daddy need more practce

Nope. We have a rule that the person who decides on a punishment carries it through.

It's better for consistency and it also makes you think twice before threatening punishments!

NU at all. He can do it himself

Will be good practice for him then won't it.

What reason does he have for not doing it himself??

Why can't your husband put his son to bed?

Booyhoo Tue 05-Feb-13 18:58:44

not UR.

why woud he expect you to do something he has decided needs done now?

MechanicalTheatre Tue 05-Feb-13 18:58:31

Obviously not.

I assume he had a hand in making him.

SirBoobAlot Tue 05-Feb-13 18:58:30

What is he doing? DH, not DS.
