Be their partner, not their mother
When you start the journey of motherhood you turn into a maternal person. This doesn’t mean you’ll start parenting your partner too. Be there for him as his friend and his life partner not as his mother. Stop treating him like a child and bring out the lover’s vibes in the marriage.
Often parents have an argument about who is putting in more efforts. You both are dedicated to your kid’s best interest, you are a team. So, don’t make it a competition and work together, not against each other.
