I WOULD love to go out as a family but my husband wants to relax and do his own thing on his days off.
I am 32, he is 34 and we have a little boy who is three.
My husband was out of work for ten months but even then, we never went out.
Now he has found a new job, his excuse is he’s too tired to do things with our son or have family days out.
I end up taking our little boy out alone but get so upset when I see other couples and their kids having fun.
My family live miles away. My husband is so selfish and I feel it is unfair on our son.
DEIDRE SAYS: It is sad. What was his relationship with his father like? Talk to him about what lies behind his reluctance to be an involved dad.
Let him choose where and what you do – but be firm.
Say you must spend one day of the weekend together as a family or that he takes your son swimming or similar.
