This is a discussion on What's the role of a FATHER? within the Home Life, Relationships & Finance forum, part of the You and Your Family category; Originally Posted by stonston Daddy D, you are right! I dont mind if my son wants to be a rock ...
My hubby also very nuah... like your maid say no rice then will go and buy... my tap leaked for a few MONTHS, hubby also no call for repairs till my mum buay tahan called a plumber!!
So far all the gynae visits, signing up for antenatal classes were also arranged by me.... so this sounds like prob next time i will also be the one worrying about my kid's education, development and growth... hubby also tell me just let the kid play as much as possible!!! SIGH!!!
wah, stonston, like that i must start to train pin on everything !
she cant read yet too!
agree with you stonston! i always tell my husband that my gal can do whatever she wants as long as she gets a degree first. hahaha
must always have something to fall back on what.
even if she wants to be a model, she must also be smart model so that she won't kenna cheated by pple.
Same . dear husband is also like that. The only thing he has to handle is his work. Nothing else. He will say things like he wants dear daughter and dear son to each learn to play a musical instrument. But say only. It is mummy who has to source around and find out more details when to start the lessons, when to get a piano, etc. Then he will make comments like wahh, jialat, both kiddos CL2 CMI, as if mummy dont know, mummy oredi reserve a place in Tien Hsia for both of them and daddy suddenly realise not bad CL2 improving oredi.
From their innoculations to going to preschool to extra classes to registration for PR school, etc, all mummy handling.
But Daddy has a big role in being the main disciplinarian, as well as crazy playmate.
My husband has been thoroughly convinced and he has volunteered to send my boy to classes and accompany him for the classes. He already went to sign up for 3 classes for my boy & he's very excited about them (more excited than I am).
& I saw him searching online for kindies in my area and printing out kindies he want to visit.
I think men need more time to 'see the light'. Thankful that I have less to worry now because my husband is helping out.
Btw, guess what my husband did to solve the problem of my boy disturbing me during tuition. He brought my son down to play. Too bad the playground is not open yet, else they'll have more fun. They went down to play with my dog and my son rode on his Lightning McQueen around the void deck
Empty vessels make the most noise
YAY!!!! And I would agree with you on the whole "need time to sink in" - my hubby is the same with some things, like buying baby things. Always delaying until the last minute and then suddenly, he'll go bonkers and start on it like crazy. LOL.
Uddermummy, introduce your hubby to kiasuparents forum & he'll start to be KS too. My husband freaked out at what other parents are doing with their kiddos and he wants to make sure he gives his best to his son too.
This morning I was telling my colleagues about my husband and one of them (male colleague) was like 'wah! like that I must also send my gal & boy !' & i know for sure his wife has been nagging at him about it for quite long
