It’s a joy to be guest-posting for my friend, Lauren, again this month! Today, I’m sharing the following thoughts in honor of Father’s Day.
As moms, I think we have all been there at one time or another. That moment when we look at our husbands and think them crazy for something they are allowing our children to do or a way in which they are interacting with them. We respond by immediately rushing in to not only mother our children, but our poor husbands, as well.
This can be such a struggle sometimes! After all, we as moms are most oftentimes the ones who are more well-versed in all things child-rearing. We read the parenting books, follow the mommy blogs, listen to the “kids and family” podcasts. We then walk away from these pursuits believing ourselves to be far more educated in the parenting realm than our poor husbands are, who haven’t conducted the same amount of research as us.
A tendency to brush aside our husbands’ perspectives if they do not line up with our own study-based beliefs and a failure to leave room for fatherhood in the home.
I believe that this is a grave mistake.
The Problem with Brushing Aside Your Husband’s Perspective on Fatherhood
Here’s the thing – God created the man, not the woman, to ultimately lead the household. We as wives and moms, however, render this responsibility nearly impossible for our husbands to fulfill when we spend our time correcting them, mothering them, and leading them instead.
