    Default Who's in charge of teaching your kids morals---you or your DP/DH?

    DH rarely bothers with 'imparting' moral values to our kids, things like sharing, honesty, caring and things. This role falls on my shoulders most of the time and sometimes I get really tired of doing it, like breaking up a fight or argument the kids are having. I also sometimes wonder if I'm on the right track. Seriously, what are men for? Does your DP/DH offer to teach morals and things?

    It's always me too. The kids can sit there just meters away from dh fighting and arguing and he's oblivious to it...arghhhh

    Both of us. We are both their parents. DH also teaches sharing, impulse control, empathy. He doesn't believe parenting is 'women's work'.

    Mostly me, because I am with them way more than my husband is.

    Definitely both of us. DH has a huge amount of patience and will explain in depth things he/we are trying to teach them.

    However, as I am with them more hours of the day, a large amount of it falls to me.

    I do feel 100% supported by him though. Sometimes if I am worried about a particular thing we will talk it through together and he will give suggestions of things I could try. For example, DD2 is going through a stage of being quite 'unfriendly' (for want of a better word) so I have been debriefing and we are (hopefully) working through it together.

    We are both responsible.

    I am with the kids more as I'm a SAHM but I will let df know about our day so that he can help continue with the kids.
