I resent him so much right now. We have 3 kids and I have basically raised them alone as a single mother. He used to work alot of overtime when the kids were smaller and I thought he just wasn;t helping cause he was working 50-60 hours a week. Now he has a different job 40-45 hours a week and even been laid off for 8 months and ignored the whole family. He stayed up all night (still does) and sleeps the day away without seeing the kids and goes to work. He thinks his contribution to the family is to just make the money and maybe once in awhile go out for a family fun day. I don;t think it's fair because he only gets to do fun stuff with the kids. I am the one taking them to school, cooking, dressing bathing, reading, waking and putting to bed, breaking up many sibilng fights, he has never disciplined them. If we go somewhere I drive and he will be sitting in the passanger side ignoring the kids fighting in the backseat.
