Yes I am a dad, but I also raised my children. I am so tired of stereotypes that say that fathers are the secondary parent. I raised my boys and have for thier entire lives, I work nights and take care of them during the day. I constantly fight the stereotypes that I am not as important or not as knowledgeable with the kids because I am a guy. Well now what I really want to know, is it unrealistic for me to expect to be around the kids everyday or at least almost everyday throughout this seperation. The entire lenght of my children's lives I have always been around them, they are my live so now that she left and I have to share them is it unrealistic to expect things to stay the same. If I ever had to be one of those dads that only see the kids on the weekends I would lose my mind. Can I really expect things to stay this way though, I have them everyday from the time I get home from work until they go to bed and also one day on the weekend. Hell I have not seen them today and I am trying to get them to come over for dinner. How do people deal with seperation from thier children. My oldest is 6 1/2 and in that entire time I have only been away from him twice and it was for one week when my ex took them to visit family in CA and I had to work. So am I being unrealistic?
