My "baby" is 5 1/2 (Julianna). She was almost 4 when I got married. My husband is a wonderful father to our daughter (Marissa) 1 1/2 yrs. But he is very hard on MY daughter. I am having a really hard time allowing him to actually be a father to her, because it seems like I'm constantly standing up for her and defending her. All day long he nags at her to "clean your room, clean up all the toys in the living her, turn off your nightlight, turn off the lights when you leave a room, turn off the tv when you leave the room, put your dirty clothes in the hamper, pick up your shoes, say please and thank-you, etc". All day long. She's 5!!! I'm not saying that she shouldn't do these things, but she doesn't even get to play. Am I being crazy? Or is this wrong? My marriage is at stake.
