How to Make Your Husband a Better Dad
When your kids are getting yelled at, insulted or called terrible names by their own father, it’s very hard to handle without interfering. It’s hard to watch any kid get treated harshly but almost unbearable when they’re your babies. It’s heart-wrenching to see their little faces fall and the tears start when you can clearly see that none of the treatment they’re getting is warranted or fair. How in the world can you stay respectful when that’s happening?
I have no idea. I don’t have any kids, so I’m still the perfect mother (just like I was the perfect wife, right up until I got married). But I have these amazing students who share how they’ve transformed the dynamic in their homes.
On today’s episode of The Empowered Wife Podcast we’re talking about how to make your husband a better dad:
- I’ll share how women have brought out the best in their husband’s interactions with their kids.
- My guest Danielle’s husband was always angry because the house wasn’t clean and the kids were being, well, kids. Their oldest child would hide from him, which broke Danielle’s heart. She suspected that her husband had low self-esteem and a mental illness, but when she learned how to bring respect and speak positively she saw his confidence rise, and their marriage got so much better. It’s not perfect, but today she says her marriage is happy and loving, and her kids are excited to see their dad. How did she do it? She’s going to tell us.
- The Worst Relationship Advice of the Week about how to avoid nagging is a classic from a major national publication and OMG does it stink!
