I have been into so much thinking about what's really going on into my family and it's kinda stressing. I am a SAHM and have two kids. My husband is working a Lil bit much and the problem is when he gets home he just played a bit with the kids maybe 5mins then shower. Afterwards he is gonna sit on the sofa and watch TV and phone, phone and TV, TV and phone. And when the kids are trying to get his attention by walking in front of TV he is getting angry. He doesn't even help with just brushing the teeth for the kids or even just going with them until I say so. Getting them ready for bed is also mine. He doesn't even care to bring the kids out to have fun, not even in the weekends. His excuse is it's just his rest days. I wonder if he knows what's the real meaning of fatherhood or shud I ask him about it? Or maybe I just have a lazy husband?Hihi

Hey there! I would talk to him about it! It does not have to be in a confrontational manner, but I would address it for sure!
Maybe have the kids ask him to play a game in the evening or possibly plan something together on the weekends as a family!
I have four kids and I work from home and when my hubby gets home he is exhausted and I do not like to rush him into it all, but the kids make sure to let him know he is wanted and needed and that is what makes it special! I hope this helps a bit! Good luck!

Hi Diamond! Thank you for the comment :) Actually the kids have done that, asking and even nagging to play with them he would really refuse and say "just go on you can play by yourselves". And i interrupt by telling him "the kids want to play with you because you are not here the whole day and they want your attention." He will just look at me at gets irritated. And the problem is when I say something he felt like I am bossing at home, and when it comes to discussion he wants to have the last word ALWAYS. So I came to thinking, what I am really or what are we to him?
