fbpx How Do I Enforce Rules With Our Kids If My Husband Doesn't Follow Them?
Authored by Dr. Michelle Murray on April 5, 2022
Dear Dr. Michelle:

One of the rules with my children is no swearing. But my husband frequently curses which I feel sends mixed messages to our kids! How can I enforce the no swearing rule when it seems to be: do as I say, not as I do?

Dear Maria:

This week, Tera Girardin sits down with Dr. Michelle K. Murray to answer your question via video!

Dr. Michelle K. Murray shares that Maria may need to sit down with her spouse and create a plan to enforce their rules, such as receiving the same consequences as their kids if they swear.  She also offers Maria alternative routes if her husband doesn't agree with the rules.
