1.Give him chances
The best way to handle this is to keep giving chances to your husband so that he can learn from his own experience. It’s his baby too, so he will never do something that will harm the child. But you’ve got to trust him and give him chances to devise his own methods of dealing with things and becoming a good parent.
2.Involve him more
If there are situations in which you feel that you are the one with more knowledge and experience, then involve your husband to be a part of the exercise and learn things from you, rather than acting all independent and saying that you will do it by yourself. Yes, you can do it all by yourself, and probably faster too if you do it that way. But you’ve got to involve him in the process and let him learn something and feel happy that he too is contributing to the upbringing of his child.
3.Make your children think of him as a good father
If you disapprove of something that he is teaching the kids or telling them, then make sure that you address the issue later on, and not in front of the kids. That way, the kids do not lose their respect for their father, and think of him as a great daddy. And in cases when he is genuinely doing something right, praise him as a good father in front of the kids, so that they can feel happy about it. You’ve got to set the right image of him in front of your kids, so that the harmony in the house is maintained.
4.Make him aware
Sometimes, husbands and fathers don’t know what all comes in their share of responsibility. They are not born with some superhuman tendencies that they can get to know the right things all in one go. You need to be there to gently remind them about what they should be doing and make them aware of it, and should be supportive, rather than being cranky and nagging about it.
5.Rework your expectations
Every family is different, and every couple has their own way of raising a child. No other family’s technique will work for you, just like yours won’t work for them. It’s on you to devise your own way of parenting and raising good kids. And in that process, you need to rework the kind of expectations you have from your partner. It’s not necessary that every married man on this planet knows how to raise kids perfectly. Each person handles the situation differently, and you can’t be expecting too much or too little from your partner.
