How much time does dad spend with his kids?
How much time does the father of your child(ren) spend with them? My partner and I are raising three kids together. The older two are his from a previous marriage, but we have them most of the time. The youngest is ours together. I’m a SAHM and my partner works from home a lot of the time. His work is often slow, so he is home doing nothing all day. He rarely helps me with anything and doesn’t spend much time with the kids. He sits in the basement and plays video games and takes a nap each day. I take care of meals, school work, sicknesses, entertaining the kids, and listening to their stories, complaints, or giving medicine if they’re sick. Sometimes he will sit in the kitchen while I make dinner, but helps with nothing. My youngest might start to whine for attention, and my partner will tell him to go play, rather than try to entertain him while I’m cooking. I just want to know how normal this is. I realize how ridiculous all of this sounds. Please don’t berate me. Just wanting to know the experiences of others. Thank you.
