We are not married, but we live together. He works and I go to school full time 2 days a week but the rest of the time Im at home with the kids. Im only 22 yrs old and Im not a super great communicator! What is a possible alternative I could offer him to keep from offending him and seeming selfish?
Wait until he gets home one day and just hand them off and walk out the door. Then wait until you are on the road to call him and tell him that you need a break and have to get some things done. Thank him in advance for giving you some much needed 'me time' and tell him you will come back with a surprise for him. Then when you get home and the kids are down you can have some adult time to give him some positive reinforcement.

If, I didn't know better I would think this is my DD who wrote this letter,she is going through the same thing,her step-kids comes on the weekends,but, when they come,her husband leave out,my DD kids are 15 yr. old, his is younger, she told her DH to plan a nice family weekend for his kids,he told her that was her job,she gave her sons money for the movies,and she went out for the day,and her DH had to watch his kids,my DD asked me was she wrong,I told her no,she had to help her DH learn how to be a good father to his kids. You should do the same thing,his kids is his responsibility,he don't have the right to leave them on you,I would understand if it was going to work,but,out with friends,that's a big no no.
