How many moms are home with children all day and are having trouble with 2 and 3yr old listening to daddy?

I'm wondering how to deal with it. I believe my husband is a good father most of the time. But from time to time looses his temper and scares our son. I'm not sure if that is the cause of him not listening to his dad but I suspect it might. When daddy gets home he plays most of the time at first than as time goes along he starts giving our son directs to do things, like eat dinner, take a bath or what not and it always gets the same response. Normally our son throwing himself down and screaming. Now I can't say that doesn't happen during the day but I can resolve it quickly. I think my husbands response is mostly out of being tired. But it doesn't go well. Normally I try to support my husband in what he is doing and not take over. But normally it gets so crazy that I end up in the end. We also have a language barrier since our son got tunes in his ear about 6mo. ago and couldn't hear. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what we should do to go from here...
