DH jealous of my sons
I could be wrong but I think DH is jealous of my sons 12 and 8 . I try to raise my kids in the best way that I can, they are well behaved at home and in public, and each time we go somewhere with them when people compliment how well behaved they are I say “thank you” and DH always says “don’t let them fool you” in a joking way.
The boys always do well in school (DS 12 gets 3.9 to 4.2 and DS 8 usually get an average of 80% ) but DH is never even congratulate them or say a thing
they have chores and take turns washing dishes, taking trash out, help me while I’m cooking and anything else they are asked to do.
They respect DH and respect our alone time, they get in their room by 8 stay up for 30 minutes to an hour then sleep. DH’s parents and his extended family love them but DH hates that and always complain about it.
Lately I notice when the boys tell him about something exciting he brushes it off, they came with report cards and were excited to show him when he gets back home but he didn’t even touch, DS12 just started playing chess at a high school level and was excited to win his first match of the tournament but when he was telling DH there was no reaction at all.
I know my kids sometimes gets in little arguments or speak and laugh loud , they aren’t perfect but I just don’t understand why DH always does that. The kids noticed and asked what was wrong and I didn’t know what to say
i’ll add Too, when they do wrong i discipline them , even when DH points out something that should be addressed, I immediately do it.
