Out of our marriage and experience with many couples with children, here’s a Top Ten list (in no particular order) addressed to parents; hopefully some of these suggestions will fit your relationship.
I feel worn out and wish my husband would give me more support. He says he wants to and that I should just give him a list. Any ideas?
Support Your Partner
1.) Take initiative with the kids.
When a child has a need or a problem, dive in. For example, be the one to tend to your child in a restaurant. If your partner offers a suggestion, take on board what’s useful in his or her comment, and keep diving in.
