Kelly,newly single mom of four wonderful children.
|How do you directly or indirectly encourage your kids to listen to the parent who is not at home all day?|
I don't, and for some reason the thought of thinking others have to makes me sad. My DH's relationship with his children is his responsibility, not mine. I shouldn't have to talk them into listening to him or respecting him or wanting to be around him. If I felt I did, I would have the talk with DH and not with the kids. Thankfully, they've always been close to him, probably not as much as they are to me, but only because they are more accustomed to me being there for them.
