How to get hubby more involved with kids
My husband and I both work full time and have two daughters, a preschooler and first grader. I work locally with some work from home flexibility, while my husband works a high-stress, frequent-travel job. We have a pretty good routine that works for us as a family, but I struggle with how I can convince my husband to take more interest in, and become more actively involved with the girls. He's a good father and husband and he loves the girls dearly, but his way of spending time with them is letting them watch TV or play iPad games while he's in his home office, or he's on his phone talking or parked on the couch watching TV, while the kids are doing their own things not involving him. Despite many conversations about it, my husband sees fatherhood as work and finds little joy in parenting . Do I just accept that he'll never be the girl's softball coach (he's not into sports anyway), or does anyone have tips/ideas to share on how you and your family make dad-time special or meaningful for both the kids and the dad?
