I have a 1 year old and i am a stay at home mom my boyfriend (the father) works a 40 hour work week Mon- Fri. Is it wrong of me to ask for help with the baby? He rarely changes diapers, almost never feeds him, never gives him a bath unless i'm gone, I feel like i'm a single parent with him just hanging around to give me money. I feel like he owes me help with the baby at least on weekends but even in the afternoon when he gets home his job is really not that hard and he says so himself so why is it that i take the brunt of OUR parenting duties? What should i do?Answer Question

Tell him how much bonding he is missing out on with his son. It is about he & his son having a relationship that is close. Ask him what he would do if he woke up in the morning & for some reason you were no longer around. If he is distant with his son when it comes to daily things, that is the role model of being a man that he is teaching his son to be. His son will also learn NOT to come to his father in times of need. Boys grow up to be the life experiences they live as a child 9 times out of 10. Good luck !!
