Some of you are now experiencing a problem when the husband rarely helps raise the children. They often ignore responsibilities including taking care of his little ones. Actually, this issue I caused from values of Thai people. They believe that a man should become a leader. His responsibility is to work outside. However, a woman has to go out to work right now. The value may change sometimes. One more important thing is the husband should take care of the children who affect to both husband and baby. Happy Mom.Life totally understands and realizes about this issue, so we’d like to suggest 6 ways to invite husband help raise the children.
Let Your Husband See The Benefits Of Helping Raise The Baby
It’s not easy to change his mind, but talking with reasons is a good way to go. You may explain to him regarding the benefits he will get such as getting closer to the baby, becoming a role model etc. Furthermore, you have to let him know that family relationships are important. If you do not help at all, distances among you family will occur.
Let The Baby Sleep On Your Husband's Chest
Creating a relationship between your husband and the baby is important because the relationship between mom and baby is stronger than the one with the father. You may try to let your baby sleep on your husband's chest to create a warm moment between them to be steadier.
Open Up About The Importance Of The Relationship
Some men may not understand that they should take care of children like women do. This causes them to neglect their duties. You need to open your mind, and talk to him to have the right understanding that everyone has an important role to develop in the baby’s growth and learning. When your husband understands, he will be proud to be a part of raising the children.
Cheer Him Up, Even If He Looks Clumsy
There are some newly dads who are not familiar with what implies raising the baby such as feeding milk, changing diapers and etc... The more you blame him, the more he will give up easily on raising the baby. However, you have to calm down. Don’t forget to appreciate when he does something good and always explain the right way when he doesn't as he is no expert.
Don’t Use Emotions To Force Him
Some of you let your husbands raise the baby, but you’re not good at communication. You may speak out with emotional tone of voices instead of talking from reason. It makes him feel annoyed, disgruntled, resistant and will surely turn into a fight. Sometimes, you have to use psychology to make sure you both communicate properly for the sake of the baby and your couple.
Don’t Neglect Him
Putting yourself in someone else shoes is another important thing that all the couples have to focus on. While you’re tired of raising the baby, your husband may be exhausted with something else too. You may do your best as a housewife in order to make them feel happy and relax. So, he will find the power in him to take care of the baby and you in return.
Although, your husband plays an important part in taking care of your baby but you are still the main character to raise the baby. Happy Mom.Life wants all of you to be proud of this wonderful role.
