My DH is great with my son. He really connects with him BUT patience isn't his strong suit. Now he is a lot more patient now than he used to be, but nothing like myself. If he finds himself getting impatient, he will take some time and step away.
Which is great because I don't want his impatience to effect our son, but at the same time, when he works out of town which is often, I don't have the luxury of stepping away when my patience wears thin.
Is your significant other pretty patient with your sn children?
