I have a 6 year old son and I work full time. My mom also lives with my son and I . I have dated this man for 9 months and the longer we date, the more he stays at my house. My mom used to be the caretaker for my son while I work and my mom's health started to get worse and now since school started , I have to take my mom's health into consideration. My boyfriend's hours ( where he lives got cut from 40 hours to 12 ) is now looking for employment where I live however he has been a huge support so far with school andmy son. He wakes up with me, helps me in the morning and then puts him on the bus. During the day, my BF does laundry and yard work until he gets my son off the bus at 3 and then is with him until I get home which takes a lot of stress off my mom.
My boyfriend feels odd because he feels it's his responsibility to work and how I look down on him for not working and he doesn't want me to feel he is free loading on me. I explained how much support he is giving me and my mother by his help but he can't accept it.
I love the fact he is around to help and he does offer a lot of support to me and my family , how can I convince he is doing more for me than he thinks ?
