I need help because I'm poising my mind with my husband. He arks 10 hour days and then the first thing he does when he walks through the door is turn his xbox 360 on or if I'm using the tv that that is connected to he goes online. But the video games are the worst he plays until I beg him to come to dinner to eat or else he plays till his oldest son needs him to look over his home work. Then he pauses the game and starts right back to it until bed time. I have a baby that just turned a year old and a step-son that is ten. I ask him to do simple tasks like change the babies diaper or put his pj's on him for me but even those thing don't get done. Why ??? I'll tell you why. He says (you know I'm playing my game and am at a crutual part or I will when the one round is finished 3 hours later.) I try talking with him explaining that this makes me angry but he says it helps him cool off and relax from such a stressedful day at work. Grr this upsets me so much. I am a stay at home mom but I would love to vent on something for hours and ignore all the important stuff around me like he does. Is there any help out there for me????
