13 Danger Signs Your Child is Your Idol

Children require a lot of time and attention. And because their needs are often immediate, we have to meet those needs at the expense of other tasks or relationships. As in most things, however, there is a balance between caring for our children responsibly, and making our whole world revolve around them at the expense of our husband.

You love your kids and would do anything for them, right?  But is that desire to give them your all coming at the expense of your relationship with your husband?  Many husbands would say yes.  They say that when children arrive, their relationship with their wife changes dramatically… and not always for the good.  So here from the man’s perspective, are 13 Danger Signs Your Child is Your Idol.
