Hey supermoms,

I came across a reddit post that seems to be resonating with a lot of people online.

It’s a candid look at the tensions that can arise between partners over differing parenting approaches, finances, and emotional support.

Nit-Picking Husband

This mom is home with two under two – no easy feat!

But her partner complains that the toys she buys for their kids are “junk” and wants her to do more intensive 1-on-1 teaching for hours.

On top of pumping, cleaning, cooking – what more can she realistically do?!

“Get a Job”

The dad also insists she get a part-time job (over and above her home-based small business), claiming it’s for her own socialization.

But she already attends mom meetups regularly.

It sounds like he may be missing the bigger picture of how overwhelmed she likely feels.

Sense of Isolation

To add to her stresses, this mom expresses feeling alone at times. That her once loving, caring partner has become emotionally unavailable.

It’s heartbreaking when the person you need the most support from checks out.

Moms, I’m sure many of you can relate to aspects of this post. The isolation, the criticism over parenting methods, the financial stresses compounded by lack of emotional intimacy. It’s heavy.
