Hi @Exhaustedmom17 ,
That sounds like such a tough situation for you to be navigating- I'm hearing that you and your husband have really different approaches to parenting as well as different family backgrounds, and it sounds really difficult when you have different ideas about what's appropriate in terms of discipline, sleeping arrangements and also quite different parenting styles. It also sounds like it's been pretty difficult for you and your husband to discuss these issues, which I imagine would be very frustrating for you.
Unfortunately our service is aimed at parents of young people aged 12-18 and we are based in Australia, so I don't have a lot of knowledge about support services available where you are. It's great to hear that you're on some waiting lists to get some professional support, I'm sorry that things are so hard to access at the moment. It sounds like you're doing all of the right things in terms of looking for a professional to help you work through these issues - here's a few other resources that may also be helpful for you/ helpful for you to share with your husband
The Raising Children's Network has some great, evidence based content on parenting young kids, and i thought these resources may be helpful:
This program may also be helpful - it's a positive parenting skills program that is run across the USA by the American Psychological Association
Wishing you and your family all the best- it sounds like you are a switched on and loving mom who wants the best for her child and family, and I hope that things start to improve for you all soon.
