  • We're both good parents, and where one is weak, the other has more strength. I will say that I do more, but that doesn't make me a better parent.

  • I would have to say me, eventhough my fiance is great at somethings I am the primary caregiver and I care for them the best. I am grateful that he is here, because he is my relief from the children. We all need a relief.

  • Right now, me. Why because I have experience with my 5 siblings, I took care of them all the time. And DH doesn't have any experience ye. DH will be a wonderful father once we have kids, I'm sure of that.

  • Depends on what you consider "good parenting." My husband gets to spend more time with our son, so gets to play with him more, take him to doctor's appointments, do crafts, etc. I, on the other hand, think about childrearing globally, so I'm the one that enrolls him in swimming lessons, plans the meals, makes sure they're balanced, keep food in the pantry, shops for his clothes, etc. We each have skills that we utilize to bring up our son to the best of our abilities.

  • Both, he is better at some things (like discipline) and I am better at others (like nurturing)

  • Me...DH is a good dad. He spends time with the kids and really enjoys being with them. He does discipline them and loves them very much. It is very close. But I have the edge.

  • My kids tell me I'm nicer, but he's more fun! So I'd have to say we each have our strengths/weaknesses and we balance each other well, but one of us isn't better than the other.

  • Both, just in very different ways. I think that is the way it is supposed to be.
