If you're a family living together it should be both the parents being equal to all the children. My husband gets up with all the kids on the weekends and does things with the boys. He picks them up from training 2 days a week on his way so I don't have to sit and wait for an hour with a toddler.

He married me knowing I had the boys and that they would always come first but he also backs me up at all times. We are united with all 3 children.

Maybe you need to sit down and have a talk with your partner and discuss how it all should work.

Well I'm probably not any help since my Husband leaves home before 6am and the kids don't need to be up till just after 7am. It's always me and I'm also the one that takes them to school and picks them up.

I don't see how you can just get 1 up and not the others though, I don't care that the other 2 aren't hers. My husband treats all 3 of our children the same and the older 2 aren't his. It's not fair on the children to be treated differently.

Well I feel if she is going to get a child up for school, it doesn't take much more effort to get the others up for school as well. If she is there, I don't see why she can't help out.



Most days my husband works, he leaves the house between 6am and 7am. On a school day, our kids usually get up around 7am, so it is usually me that takes care of it and getting them ready. If it happens to be that my husband doesn't start work until 8am the odd day, he will help out in the mornings.

Thank you for responding Michelle I feel the same way but my partner feels that she doesnt have to be serious ablut it until her daughter starts school and I dont feel its fair. She is supposed be to work at 8 but our kids get up at 6 I understand that she doesnt have to get up that early but how come its ok to feel that you are obligated to get up when its your daughter but not my boys when we are supposed to be a family????
