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?

I struggled with this. I've learned that if you don't let him do anything, or bring your child anywhere especially if y'all are together, it's just going to push him away. Let him be a dad just like you're being a mother. Moms and dads parent different. Let him do his way and you do your way.. It makes things much easier. It's their child too.

I’m terrified. He will be a SAHD and I’m afraid he won’t know what to do and either my daughter will suffer or I’ll be called every hour on the hour while at work

In a lot of ways, my hubs doesn’t know what he’s doing. Like sleep training, he had a night shift and took our nug out of his bed to comfort him which just woke him up more. I usually say things like “you’re a great dad” as often as possible and when I see him confused or struggling or feeling silly, I say “I’m sure you already know this, but it works really well to xyz”

Oh I am 100% guilty of this!!!!! We basically sat down and just had a super honest conversation about it all. Michael understands that I can be controlling and have serious anxiety when it comes to our daughter, so he’s understanding of my need to feel in control. We basically compromised by him allowing me to essentially show him I do things and then him work his best to do things the same way...and in return, I’m more lenient and understanding of him doing some things differently. I still struggle with trying to control his parenting but we get through it by maintaining an open line of communication and just being patient with each other!
