In a startling series of events, a father stumbles upon his wife's 'switched off' parenting style when she's alone with their twin boys. The unexpected revelation, caught on their home's nanny cam, depicts the usually engaged mother completely checked out, absorbed in her tablet and ignoring the kids. When confronted, she becomes defensive and shuts down the conversation. The father is left in a whirl of confusion and worry, questioning his actions and desperately seeking answers. What's really going on? Let's dive into the internet's reaction to this perplexing situation... 🌐💬
NTA. Concerns about unsupervised kids and mature conversation needed. 🙏
"YTA. Stop being a helicopter parent. She deserves better." 😲
Mom enjoys some peace while kids play, nothing concerning here 😊
"YTA. And all the commenters accusing OPs wife of child neglect are assholes too. Are the children neglected? By all accounts, they sound like healthy, clean and loved children who have somehow managed to have stayed alive for three years despite their mother's use of noise cancelling headphones. Eating frozen mozzarella sticks? So what? Rough housing play? Shock, horror! Quite frankly, it sounds like neither OP nor the majority of commenters have any experience or imagination of the reality of spending minute after minute, hour after hour, day, week, month and year after year raising young children. It's shrill, noisy, boring, messy and exhausting and if the children are healthy, their mother as their primary caregiver has been doing a damn good job so far. To the OP: It sounds like you're shocked that your wife feels public pressure and shame to perform this myth of Madonna like motherhood where she is constantly actively engaged with her children. Try have some empathy. Imagine you, alone, spending every moment of every day as the only caregiver to your twin boys. How much of time of every single day can you honestly say you would spend behaving the way that your wife does when other people's eyes are on her? I bet you'd struggle to last 48 hours. You owe her an apology and more appreciation of the unfair, asymmetrical, unrealistic and sexist expectations of women, particularly as mothers." 😲 L O U D E R 🗣♀️ I really hope this post means that OP's willing to show his wife how it's done by spending all day with his kids and being 100% engaged the entire time. Everything OP's written, plus a lot of the comments, makes me feel so bad for this poor woman. She clearly wants to be a "perfect" mom in front of others and her husband, but that's an impossible standard nowadays. Her husband is literally freaking out because he's not satisfied with her being in the same room with them all day, he needs her to actively engage with them the entire time, and intervene for very minor stuff. Maybe she hasn't even admitted it to herself that she's overworked, but she definitely needs more than just two mornings and an evening off - and more importantly, she needs a husband who's more aware of what a high standard he's pressuring onto her." 😲
