Let dads be a dad

I’ve struggle letting my husband be a dad. If he isn’t doing it the way I do it, it’s wrong an I push him out the way. I need to stop!! It’s not fair for him or Asher. I get so anxious an totally dismiss my hubs. Anyone else have this issue? If so how are you trying to make things better?

Hey how are you doing with this? Have you loosened the reigns a bit?

I had the same problem until my mom put it in perspective for me. The dads role is just important as the moms & that’s something I had to learn

I do this. And i feel awful, because then i talk about how i feel completely alone in this parenting thing. But, sometimes, it's just because i want to take care of my son. Because i feel like dad messes up or doesnt do something the way i think he should. Or the way i have come to find that my son wants something done. Since going back to work i havent really had a choice but to let him be a dad. Hes, as of right now, a stay at home dad. And so im being forced to let him parent! And I think actually experiencing that space and that peace has helped me step back. Seeing him do well when im gone. Feeling that peace of not doing this alone. Allowing him to be our son's daddy and parent his own way. It helps.

I have the same problem! I like to be extremely careful w my baby boy. I’m always worried about baby all the time. Hubby is very lax with baby. It used to drive me crazy. I have learned to let him do things his way. Baby is half his after all. Thank goodness nothing bad has happened thus far. It’s tough for us mamas!

I'm also struggling to just let him do what he's doing and I've already told him how I feel how I teach so obviously if he does what he's doing that's just his parenting method and it doesn't mean that he's wrong I just care so much for my little ones and I'm very specific about how I want things done it's hard for me to let go just take a breath and remind yourself that as long as they're not in physical harm just let it be easier said than done but we'll get through it together girls
