Does your man act like a kid?

Just curious I mean can they do things on their own, or are you expected to do it??

  • To answer your question, YES ALL MEN ARE JUST A KID IN A GROWN BODY.

  • To some extent he does things for himself but he has his bad days where he asks me to do for him and I'm like "Do it yourself!"

  • I seriously don't know what DH would do without me! lol He acts like a child, has to be told what to do a lot of the time. I love him and he is a great provider and has moved up so much at work. But at home he's an immature, obnoxious child. Hard to tell the difference when him and my 4 yo DS are arguing.
    When things need to be done, things he needs and is completely capable of doing, I'm expected. I was heading out the other night and he was fine with that until he realized that he would be responsible for cooking and feeding and putting to bed out 3 kids. What a baby, I started dinner and he had to finish it. The kids were still up when I got home about 7:30, he haden't even started the bed time routine. ARGH!!!!

  • Yes. They are all like this. We just had this same argument last night when I cam home. The only things that he had done were put the LO to bed and loaded the dishwaswer (I asked him to do that 4 days before). All the other things I needed done were still not done. The best advice I got was from one of my neighbors and that is "realize that you will have to do everything even though you both are equally qualified to do it and the faster you realize it the better off you will be". I don't agree with it but it has helped my stress level.

  • Men are not as dumb as they make us think they are. They all have us trained. They watched their dad claim to not know where socks were, the milk was, peanut butter, underwear, keys, phone numbers, etc. We watched our moms direct, recall, find, and/or provide all the above and more. Our men have trained us to be the same way. They stand with the refridgerator door opened peering in and say, "Where's the mayo?", and we get up, walk over, move the milk so they can "find" it. It is absolute genius on their part. There has to be something Freudian about the whole thing.

  • He acts like a kid but he can do his own laundry etc. I naturally do it while I am doing the rest but he lived on his own so he is not helpless. Now as for behaving like he is in the 5th grade oh yeah he does that!
