Male Chauvinist

Today is my son's birthday. Its hard to believe that I gave birth to him 15 years ago. They just grow too fast! Hes my youngest

So hubby and I were discussing what to get him for his birthday. Since he has grown almost 3" in the past few months, he really needs clothes. He also wants a new mountain bike, but hubby was thinking of getting him a scooter.

But this brings me to the point of my blog today. My daughter turned 18 last August and he wasn't even around for it. He went to Canada on a fishing trip, knowing it was her birthday. He didn't even call her on her birthday to wish her a Happy Birthday. Of course she was hurt by this but didn't tell him.

Hubby has always given more attention, more love to our son then our daughter. Always takes his side over my daughters. He ALWAYS compares them. Hubby was the baby of his family and never had to be the "older" sibling so he doesn't see it.

No wonder my daughter is bitter towards him and that they argue constantly. It just hurts to see him do this to her. I have come to the conclusion that he is a damm male chauvinist!

Honey, I think you're right, he is. Take comfort in the fact, that when the kids get older (your son) they start to see that behavior in their father, and they act accordingly (your daughter). That's why my two kids live with me full time (their choice) and don't see their father at all!!

It still hurts to see him treat her that way

Your husband can probably relate better to your son. "The man club thing." Father and daughters have to be close from an early age ( daddy's little girl ) or they become strangers as they get older. Some men cannot "connect" with thier daughters...therefore the mothers get to "handle" the girls. I feel for your daughter. I have a shitty I can relate.

The sad part is, she was daddy's little girl until our son was born!

my baby girl is 18 too
dads just father the best they can in the way they know how. too bad it's not in the way we want, but there is love and acceptance anyhow.

I know it still hurts, believe it or not, my ex used to do that with my son and favor our daughter. She finally wizened up to that stuff, saw how her father treated her brother, who is the oldest, and really started to see him in a new light.
