A dad-of-three says he and his wife have had a huge fight, after he claimed she’s privileged to be able to stay home with their children.
He says he understands how much work his wife does with the children and that she doesn’t have it easy, but she has dropped the ball of late.
“We have three kids that she takes to and picks up from school Monday to Friday,” he explained.
“I told her I’m very grateful that she’s home with the kids and I don’t have to miss work when they are sick. However, she still occasionally gets them to school late and I have gotten calls from the school that she didn’t pick them up and they can’t get a hold of her because she’s napping.
“We were talking about her not picking up the kids on time one day when I made the point and said, ‘You are privileged to be a stay at home mum’. This caused an enormous fight.”
He said his wife pointed out that she’s ‘on call’ 24 hours a day for the kids, and is upset at his comment.
“I was just pointing out that it’s not something that every family gets to do and we are fortunate that I make enough money for her to not have to work.”
The confused dad now wants to know if he said the wrong thing.
