Working Dad Doesn’t Think He Should Have to Get Up With Kids
Subreddit r/AmItheAss**** is "A catharsis for the frustrated moral philosopher in all of us, and a place to finally find out if you were wrong in an argument that's been bothering you. Tell us about any non-violent conflict you have experienced; give us both sides of the story, and find out if you're right, or you're the ass****."
One post has been gaining national online attention and debate. A new dad is wondering if he's the jerk for thinking his wife should be the one to take care of their newborn twins during the night since he works a fulltime job and she doesn't.
When I first heard this story I thought Dad was in the wrong. Like, dude, those are your kids too. Help a momma out once in a while.
Then I read his post.
He states he works 12-hour shifts and a typical work week is between 72 and 84 hours a week.
He then added that they have a housekeeper who has also taken on the role of a nanny who works 35 hours a week. Mom often naps while the nanny is around.
