    I do, absolutely, he's great with them, feeds dresses and cleans them, does more outings and home cooking than I do! The one area I'm better at is the whole mothering thing (oh ha ha what a surprise) but when they are upset I'm the one that manages it, I break up the fights and cuddle the tears away etc. He's a bit more free range than I am so I stress he'll lose sight of them in the park etc but he hasn't lost them yet ha ha *touch wood*

    100%, in many ways he's a better parent than I am. It would be a hard thing to not trust DH with his own children.

    Im often sadened by the fact that so manu of my friends wont leave their children with their DH's cos they dont trust them/the DH refuses to look after them alone. My DH tells me to go out all the time for a break and he babysits my besties 2 kids as well (as her partner works FIFO) so will quite often have 5 kids for a few hours. I honestly couldnt imagine not being able to trust him.

    I absolutely do trust dp. I went into this relationship with my eyes wide open due to going through a divorce and I was very careful choosing this guy. He's great with the kids, sure he does things in ways I wouldn't, but that doesn't make him bad or a worse parent.
    He looks after all four kids regularly and is generally fab all round in that regard.

    100%. He has solo parented the kids for several long stints now. I actually think he's a better parent than me in many ways.

    Being perfectly honest no, not 100%.

    Really similar to what LaDiDah said - he will have something he has to check/lookup/do that absolutely cannot wait & must be done there & then. DD is 3 & he thinks it is fine to leave her in the bath alone. Maybe I'm a bit helicopter parent like but I think 3 is too young to be unsupervised. If he is distracted by something he'll be absorbed with it to the exclusion of all else.

    He can look after her fine & loves her to bits but if he gets distracted...

    I can't say that I trust him 100% because I don't really trust him to feed DS on schedule and the 'right' things although he's getting better. He looks after DS 2 days a week when I'm at work and has done so for a year but I still get asked what I think he should give DS for lunch. I find it really really frustrating because it's the same thing every day - fritters, meatballs or sausage rolls from the freezer with some salad and cheese and maybe an avocado sandwich. It's not that creative - I save that for when I'm home on weekends.

    Other than that I trust him with everything or I wouldn't be leaving them together all day.

    Yes I completely trust DH to parent DD. He's very hands on and I feel completely comfortable leaving her with him. Like others have said, in many ways I think he's a better parent than me and if I had the same earning potential as him I think I would've gone back to work and he would've stayed home with her.

    Yes, 100% trust him. Just wish he'd do things my way!!!!

    My DH is the part time stay at home parent and he does a pretty good job. Except he's terrible at dressing him in clothes that match! He absolutely adores our DS.

    I trust him completely with DS although I do think he needs to work on his baby settling skills. He's not big on the long cuddles that DS sometimes needs to go to sleep at night. When he gets tired of holding him he tends to lie the baby down beside him on the couch, put the dummy in and then tune into his iPad. I have to admit that this irks me somewhat. Bub is only little and will settle much faster if he's held and rocked a little but DH just doesn't have the patience for it.
