DH has been home for 2 hours and has barely given DS any attention, I make the dinner whilst DH does work emails dinner and then after dinner, I ask DH to give him a bath before bed, I then think it's a bit quiet up there, and go upstairs, DH is on his phone in the bedroom whilst 3yr old DS is on his own in the bath next door.

Is it too much for DH to actually just sit and chat with DS for 5/10 minutes and laugh with him?? DH moans that DS doesn't really listen to him, or is more short tempered with him and I think 'it's because you don't give him any bloomin attention!'

DH has no patience with getting him dressed in the morning and moans at him, he is bloomin 3 ffs! No 3 year old gloriously gets themselves dressed in under a minute every morning.

Arghhhhhh

I wouldn't be happy about him leaving a 3 year old alone in the bath - in fact, I'd be furious! He sounds as though he's detached himself from family life, doesn't he?

I wouldn't be happy about someone leaving my 3yr old alone in the bath unsupervised tbh, let alone the rest of it.
In short, I'd be very very pissed off.

As others have said, I have a 3 year old and he is not yet left alone in bathroom. He clearly doesn't care about spending time with his son. My dh works long hours but will spend time with our son chatting and playing with him. My son runs straight up to him when he walks through the door.

I think you need to have a serious talk with him tonight.

Your reap what you sow -

He needs to learn this and quick!

Ban the phone and tell him to improve his relationship with you and DS - otherwise he's going to be very lonely

I would be seriously pissed off at your DH.

That's not ok, from a safety point of view, nor from a DH point of view! Work emails can wait the half hour it takes to get your boy bathed and into bed. DH needs to learn to compartmentalise and prioritise!

I would be furious that he had left him alone in the bath. He sounds like he's not really interested and that's not fair on you or your son!

Ask dh what sort of relationship he envisages having with ds in the future. .
And what sort of marriage!
The way he is going it will need nil to both. .

Thanks for your replies, I thought it was unreasonable, we need to have a chat when he gets in.
