It’s important to take time out for yourself when becoming a mother. It’s important to listen to your body, follow a healthy eating diet plan and exercise as part of a healthy lifestyle.
All these types of things allow you to focus on you and your personal needs to ensure you’re a healthy, happy mum, wife, partner etc, to make family life the best it can be.
If we know it’s important to take some time out for ourselves each day, why do we make it so difficult and make up so many excuses? Why do we often turn down the help of the fathers of our children? Is it because we’re too controlling and think our way is the only way? Is it because Dads can do things differently and maybe we think that’s the wrong way to do it?
Lose Baby Weight asked parenting and baby website Bub Hub what they thought about how we often find it hard to just let Dad do it! Here clinical Psychologist Renee Mill from Bub Hub, shares some thoughts on this topic:
More mums should just let dad do it!
Mothers frequently complain to me that their partners – the fathers of their children – are not as involved as much as they would like.
Some of the more common complaints are …
“My partner will make dinner if I tell him what to cook, but how hard is it to show some initiative?”
“Every Sunday has to be planned because, if I leave it up to John, the kids will fritter away the day.”
“When Martin puts Alissa to bed, he is always late, so I am forced to do it myself if I want her to have a routine.”
Women today feel very sure of themselves and believe that the way they are running their home, or bringing up the children, is the best way possible.
While this is empowering, it can exclude dad and his way of doing things. If you would like more cooperation, then you need to change your thinking and apply sound psychological principles.
