How does it play out in your home?

My wife is more shouty and I am more cuddles and play time

We try to work together as a team of course, but those are just our natures.

Sometimes mums have more pressure as children are with them 24/7 so its hard to be patient at all times.  For example, if mum is cooking dinner and children play up, then shouting is more likely.  Could you ask if she needs more help around the home?  Perhaps you could clear up dinner so she can do bath time and have fun with the children.  Sorry, I'm probably making unfair comments but not all dads help.

The comments are fair but I more than do my share. I work from home so am around all day to help if she needs it. SHe is a deep sleeper so I always deal with the kids over night if they wake or need anything and I get up with them.

I finish work around 4 so I can have the kids whilst she prepares dinner.
