Distant

Today, when my husband told me years ago he wanted to parent just like his dad used to, I had no idea that meant helping with practical stuff like cooking and nappy changing, but otherwise ignoring our kid's emotional well-being and telling them to buzz off when they try to talk to him. FML

Uh... so, when he mentioned this you didn't at any point ask him to tell you want his father's parenting style was to see if it was something you agreed with? What if it had been 'no dinner ever and weekly beatings'?

You kind of deserve it... but also, sit him the eff down and talk to him about how not cool it is.
