So, how do you tell someone who truly believes they are being a wonderful Dad and fantastic provider, that he really should not do that. I have lived this scenario already and can say that I was well provided for, as were my children, but I lost the connection to my husband because he was not there. He was busy providing. He missed out on soooo many things. Are we all grateful...yes. But what a toll that took on everyone. I now watch my daughter as she takes over the responsibilties of everything because her husband is providing. Is he wrong? No, of course not, but the emotional stress this puts on my daughter and my grandchildren is huge. He is missing out on so much. The answer....in this day and age, there is no answer. He must provide, but it makes me so sad to see what is happening.
