This is going to sound bad, but how do I tell my Dh that he is clueless when it comes to his kids? I don't know, maybe it's his age, he's 28 and probably not totally mature, as it takes men forever in that department it seems.
I feel like I am always having to tattle on the kids to him or tell him how to approach things. His daughters are 12 and 11, and he doesn't check up on their grades, who they are going out with, their computers, phones etc. He is a very loving dad and always has been, but it seems like he thinks they are still in that little innocent stage and that the world is completely safe for them so he doesn't have to monitor anything.
It's concerning me and I don't want to seem like a evil stepmother or a horrible nag, how do I talk to him about this and maybe get him to change?
