Problem with trust my husband

by Jane
(US)

I have 2 kids. I am house wife and take care of kids for 10 years. I not have job for 10 years because I not trust my husband stay home alone with kids. He not watch my kids and he not know how to take care of kids. I tried to teach him how to take care of kids and how to cook but he not listen to me. He won't let me get babysitter to watch my kids if I go to work. He is really lazy not go to work because he like stay home and play with computer all day everyday.


I really want go to work to earn retirement for future but my husband try to control my life. I feel hopeless and depression. What should I do??

"You gave us counseling without making either one of us feel that you were taking sides.
You always maintained your impartiality with us. You encouraged Rita to be more assertive in stating what she wanted to get from your counseling sessions, as well as what she wanted to get from the relationship.
You taught both of us better communication between ourselves, which lead to an emotional comfort level between us that didn't exist before.
You took control of the direction of the session if things were not moving along.
Thanks so much
for helping us."
