Dear Son, That's MY Wife | DSP Ep 52 w/ James Johnson #fatherhood #jealousy #attention

Jan. 26, 2023

Enjoy the visual experience:

Sometimes men get struggle with the dual roles of father and husband. In fact, we can be downright jealous of our children when their needs supersede our physical and emotional needs as a husband. “Hey Son…get off my wife!” Is that unrealistic? Is there a way to balance the roles? What is balance?!

In this episode, we have a transparent conversation about the responsibilities of fatherhood and how they impact the romantic relationships in our homes. We’re both fathers and husbands with relatively large families, but the household dynamics are different. This resulted in a healthy dialogue and several meaningful revelations along the way.

We highly recommend that you consume the entire episode for the best results. Also, meet us in the comments or tag us with your opinion on social media via the links below. As always, we welcome your perspective. It takes a village. 

Consider the following recommendations when assessing your current performance as a father and a husband (or significant other).

Three Tips to Balance Being a Father and a Husband

  1. Make time for yourself - As a father and husband, it can be easy to put your own needs last. However, make sure to carve out some time for yourself each day. Whether it’s a few minutes of meditation, reading a book, or going for a walk, having some “me time” can help you stay balanced and energized for your family. 
  2. Connect with your spouse - Make sure to keep the lines of communication open with your spouse. Talk about how each of you are feeling, what’s going on in your life, and how you can support each other. It’s important to stay on the same page and stay connected.
  3. Prioritize family time - Create meaningful family time each week. Whether it’s having a family dinner, playing a board game, or going out for ice cream, make sure to carve out time to be together and appreciate each other. This will help create strong bonds and build memories that will last a lifetime.
