My partner is a rather private person (borderline paranoid private) and doesn't like to be talked about on the internet. Unfortunately for him, his wife is a writer and, well, she is not a private person. Frankly, I'm fed up with the ways my husband doesn't help me parent at all and the world needs to hear about it.
We both work full-time outside of the house and when we both come home, he refuses to help. He doesn't help in the evenings, he doesn't help on the weekends, he doesn't even help when we go out as a family. I am consistently baffled by these women who gloat when they tell me their husbands help all the time. Where are these men who help? I'd like to find them and talk to them about this hard work they are doing.
My husband doesn't help. He doesn't assist. He doesn't babysit. My husband is a husband to me and a father to our kids. He does what he does because he is part of our family. He is equally responsible for everything that happens in our marriage, in our relationship, and in our household. He is an equal partner in terms of child-rearing. We both raise our children, teach our children, and develop our children. We are both responsible for building a life together and creating a home. We don't help each other, we just do.
