    Yeah but leaving your child in the car and holding a child's nose so he/she can open their mouth are two different things. One can lead to death and the other... Won't.
    I just don't see it as that much of a big deal. If DH did that, I'd tell him nicely & we'd laugh about it later on.
    I just feel that it's better to choose your battles. Men need encouragement as well sometimes : )

    OP I totally get where you're coming from - if it frightened you and worse your baby then that's awful. It sounds to me that the way you described it he was being quite harsh and even nasty by doing that. If anyone, including DS's dad did that to DS to try to force him to eat I would walk up and slap them. How awful! And the 'my house my rules ' is an ogre and cruel thing to say too.

    You need to let him know how disturbed you (obviously and rightfully) were by that aggressive behaviour and hopefully it ends there. Your feelings are valid!

    ^ Completely agree, honestly to me that is harsh behaviour at best and I would feel the same way you do OP, had my partner done that to our little girl. I would be worried about his temper/lack of patience. Having said that, learning to parent together is a hard road, stay resilient and communicate well, have a laugh now and then and it should work out ok.
