Re: DH watches kid like grandparent
My dh has done things like that before. Once he fed the boys a bag of pretzels all day because he didn't want to cook! He has gotten a lot better since then after he realized he really needed to step up as a dad. I would have a heart to heart talk with him and let him know that the way they are raised now influences the kind of teenager and adult they will become. Once my dh realized they are little sponges and the boys started being really lazy with stuff he changed for the most part. There are still some days when he really slacks off but 99% of the time doesn't.
