We see a lot of our 3 GCs who live close by (aged 4.5-9.5).
I am generally patient, very warm and loving with them. H on the other hand is so grumpy and tries to be the disciplinarian with them despite the fact that it's clearly not our role.
It's got to the point now where it's become one of the main sources of tension between H and me.
Also the GCs often say they don't want to be with him because of this.
I try and talk to him about it but he becomes so defensive and angry that it just ends in a huge fight.
I simply don't know what to do.
I often find it easier to be with the kids alone, without him, that way there is no tension.
It's so sad that this lovely time of our lives gets spoiled by his moods and lack of patience.
I am just venting really but if anyone has any advice I'd love to hear it!
