  • What are the kids ages? It wasn't the case with my husband, but I know some men are just more comfortable with older kids.

  • Have you talked to him about it? He may not even realize that what he's doing could really hurt his son's self esteem.

  • So, is the issue that he plays with your daughter more than your son, or that he plays on the computer more than playing with either of them?
