Sometimes I feel like my husband don't know how to be a father to my daughter or he is just that selfish and irresponsible. He was putting a elliptical machine together and left the pocket knife on the floor. My DD step on it twice, and it pissed me off. Then this morning he warmed up leftovers for him that contained HOT peppers, my DD was hungry, and instead of him fixing her something to eat, he told her that was his, and sat down and gave her a spoonful. That made me fire hot mad, and Im still mad. I was in the office doing my course work (in grad skool). he has nothing to do but watch football, so I figured he would look after her, or atleast feed her while I was busy. There has been other incidents.Am I overreacting or is this a serious problem. We dont have any kids yet, but this is making me not want any with him. Sometimes he is great with her, he doesnt abuse her or anything but things like this makes me worryAnswer Question

I think you are overreacting. I think if you took a long hard look at yourself you would find things that you do as a parent that are questionable too. Not everyone is perfect. Your husband did not have time to grow into being a father. He instantly became one when you two got married. Didn't you make mistakes in the beginning when you were a new mom? If you are telling him that he is doing things wrong all the time he is eventually going to give up and the only one that is going to really suffer is your daughter. Quit being controlling. As long as he is not hurting her back off and let him take care of your daughter in his own way. Just because it is not the way you would do it does not make it wrong.
