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.

Do you trust your Other half? *spinoff*

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.

Yep definitely, I wouldn't be with him if I didn't

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
