Ok first - let me say DP's dad died when he was four and his mum was and still is useless because shes still grieving 30 years later.
Now this guy impressed me at the begining. He was very mature as he pretty much raised himself.
But since having kids he's reverted to a 15yo.
Seriously - aside from laziness, he has found a new bad habit.
He can't seem to have a conversation without dropping a few F bombs and when he's on the phone to work colleges or mates the C word comes out too.
He won't remove himself from the room even when DS 2.5yo and DD 15m are present.
Twice now while reading the kids bedtime stories he's made really stupid sexual side jokes, the way a 15 year old would and his mates would find it funny.
And it wasn't a clever double meaning. Just crass.
I pulled him up on it the first time because I was gobsmacked.
Now it's happened again and I'm just disgusted.
Does anyone else have a partner who does this because I find this really hard to deal with.
I mean it's not hard to stay G rated while reading a golden book is it?

DP inappropriate in front of kids

Absolutely no call for that type of behaviour. Sorry I don't have any advise just wanted to say you have a right to feel the way you do. I would feel the same and would not put up with it either.

Treat him like a child and set up a swear jar.
Ban him from story time (but he can't slack off, do the dishes or something)

Oops, I placed my comment on your other post! I also do not think he should be banned from reading to the kids. This is something not enough dads do. Even if they find Golden books somewhat more sexually explicit. Tell him to pick a book more suitable if he is getting turned on by the story or picture!

Ergh, my ex was like this.
Anything inappropriate I would always pull him up on it. Though it did nothing.
With the swearing, I would only ever pull him up on the C word, which he did mostly stop. All the other swear words he would still let fly, and I must say that my kids don't ever swear, they tried each swear word once and after explaining that it's an adult's word, they never said it again.
So personally I wouldn't be worried about the swearing, just the crass jokes. Yuck.
