Slacker and Steve - Should the kids be left with dad?

April 14, 2016

Today's OPP is from Eric:

 

Yi guys,

My wife and I have 2 kids (they are 2 and 4). I can probably count the number of times she's left the kids alone with me on one hand. It doesn't matter what she's doing or how busy she is, she always takes the kids with her. Even if I'm just sitting on the couch watching TV. I have no problem watching the kids and have told her she can leave them with me when she runs out, but she always says it's just easier to take them with her. I don't get it. I feel like I'm a pretty good dad. I play with the kids when I get off work every night and I've never yelled at them or spanked them. I don't understand why she doesn't trust me with the kids. What could I have done? Help guys!

Eric
