My husband stays home with my 11mo old baby. When my 5 and 9 yr olds get home from school it seems like they are immediately in trouble. I know it must be frustrating being at home but I feel like he takes it out on the kids way too much. He used to get them ready for school in the morning and now I do (before I work full time) because all I would hear all morning was him yelling at them. I didnt want them to have to go to school in a bad mood so I started doing it. Now, I am having to get my kids from the bus and bring them to work with me so they can do homework with me because he would just yell at them and they still wouldnt be done with it when I would get home at 5:30. They are usually crying or in the corner when I get home. Dont get me wrong, on days when I am home, my husband is fine. He does things with the kids, plays with them outside, and is a great dad, most of the time. During the week, its like hes mad all the time. He gets so mad, they cant even ask simple questions or have a small conversation about their day at school without him telling them to go to their rooms. I dont know what to do? Any suggestions?
