    Default Do you trust your Other half? *spinoff*

    A but of a spin off from the babysitting drama thread, but do you trust your significant other when it comes to the care of your children?

    I honestly think in many ways my DH is a better parent than me, and he is the one person whom I have absolute trust in when it comes to our kids.

    If you dont trust your other half, is there a reason for it? Or just have trouble relinquisging control/another reason etc.

    I am just genuinely curious, I so often feel like DH is better at this parenting thing than me that it wouldnt occur to me to not trust him with them.

    Completely, without a doubt.

    My situation is a little different to most though, as my DH cares for DS more than I do (5 days a week while I'm at work full time).

    Without a doubt. I wouldn't be with him if I didn't trust him 100%

    Nope. As you know from the other thread. We are slowly working on the trust issues though.

    The other week we had an arguement so I said I would go out for an hour or so leaving dh to bath ds (which he usually does). I lasted 10 minutes! Ha! I couldn't trust him with ds while he was tired and angry. He is a good dad though but can get frustrated easily and can't settle ds.

    Trust is very hard to earn back once lost. But its worth trying imo.

    I take my hat off to you for trying, that must be really hard work, and you're right, it is worth trying to get back. My DH lied to me once when we first started dating (a big lie) and it took me a really really long time to move on from that!

    I completely agree with you, once lost trust is very hard to earn back.

    While I trust my DH 100% it's his family I don't trust. He has no problems with his family, despite their bad behavior over the last few years and would very happily let them look after the kids whereas I avoid it as much as I can.

    Absolutely I do.

    I went back to work when DD was 6 months old so he was looking after her on his own for 12hrs a day.

    They have the most amazing relationship now and I love seeing them interact with each other.

    He might not do things the exact same way I do, but he does it his way and that's fine.

    I know I could go away for a few days and he would be totally fine. I would just never be able to cope without her yet.

    I trust my DH to look after our son. He is around often enough to know what DS needs and I know he will do pretty much the same things with him that I would. He is very involved, he does as much as I do, bath time, meal times, nappies etc. I don't think that I'd want to be raising kids with a man who couldn't be trusted to look after them. Parenting is a team effort
