Parenting is a magical experience but its no walk in the park. The world is changing and so are parenting styles. As we wade through these complicated times children require the presence and attention of both their parents with complementing skills. The Mothers and Fathers themselves need each other’s support to manage crazy work hours, sleepless nights, during hospital visits and still have a balanced life.
We asked our users how they exercise equal parenting at home and here are some amazing stories of women who are raising extraordinary boys and girls with the help of their husbands.

There is so much that I’m thankful for. Here’s my little attempt to show my husband how proud I m to have him in my life. Thank you so much Keval, for everything. Since the 1st day, we met till now. During raising n taking care of our little daughter Dhwity you helped in many ways like holding my hair back during that morning sickness session, for running out for my midnight cravings and for letting me use all pillows n most of d part of our bed so I can feel comfortable during pregnancy.
Most amazing, for holding my hand during labour so I can feel safe n strong. Thanks for rocking n changing our newborn at night so I could get some sleep. After the long day at work u still happily help with everything. Maybe Dhwity will grow up and not understand all things u have done for her and me but I can see you and I am thankful for it. You gave me strength and you always encourage me. And the most important thing for me is you appreciate all I do for our daughter more than anybody.
Babygogo is a great app which enables us to share our feelings with all the mothers out there. My husband is always been supportive throughout my pregnancy. My pregnancy was very difficult, I delivered a pre-term baby, my husband took a month off to take care of the baby. He wakes up all night feed our daughter changes her diaper and in the morning even at 6 am. Till now he always took care of our daughter.

It feels very good to share about my partner today. Parenting completes only when both of the parents give equal importance to the child in all aspects. It’s not necessary who pampers the child more but punishment when necessary too. I have a very calm, faithful and supporting hubby. He supported me from the day I met him till now. In all aspects it can be financial, my studies and my job. My hubby stays aboard most of the time. But he is a person who supports without showing to the world who he is and what is he going to do. His calm supportive words are enough to manage my child alone.
Even though he is far away. He makes sure to call whenever I give missed call. Or routine timing of the call to speak with me and my baby and share with us our feelings and love. Whenever he is with us he makes sure that he is with us all the time to spend his quality of time with sharing my household chores and caring baby whatever he can.
His words of appreciation and words of love and caring are just enough to be satisfied with all. He not only cares for me and my child but he looks after my parents too. This makes me more secure and comfortable in managing a baby. With a lot of stress of managing a baby, my parents, and job. It’s difficult to do manage life. But a word of love is enough to handle everything in life.
My husband says the child’s duty is never a duty of a mother only.
It is very important for a husband to also consider the baby as a shared responsibility. I am an extremely career-oriented woman. I had no experience in handling babies. Right from the first day my husband helped literally from the stage of how to handle baby till cleaning his potty.
Now my baby is 8 months all though I have learned a lot through these months I give credit to my husband who was extremely patient to help start through this journey called Motherhood. Now also he continues to do his night ups to feed him formula as he knows and understands for the whole day due to his tight work schedule he isn’t able to do anything. I thank God every moment and I do feel blessed to have him in my life.
My husband is everything for me. I can’t think about living without him even for a single day and my dependence on him is increased so much after the birth of my baby. When I became a mother I did not know how to take care of him, I had a c-section delivery, therefore I could not get up of my own for some days he was a great help and I can’t describe in words.
My son was a colic baby, he was very fussy for a few months and my in-laws could not handle him. I was so depressed knowing nothing that I could do. I could not complete my household work till late afternoon moreover my son woke up very often at least 8-10 times in the night. My husband was with me every time. He tried to calm down my son as soon as he returned from the office.
Moreover, he also woke up in the night with my son so that I could take rest for a few hours. Now my son is 2years old. My hubby and my baby are awesome. They are two cutest people I can’t live without. He spends time with my son, he plays a lot with him. He is such a great life partner and a very good father.
Parenting is not easy without the support of my hubby. He is always with me to tackle difficult situations. So supportive n caring person I got. Feels lucky😍😍

Hello All, My husband is my support system. He cares about the family very much. During my pregnancy, he was very careful about my diet and regular check-ups. We are blessed with a cute baby girl and. He takes care of her food times, changing diapers and pants daily, even he gives a bath to our baby and boil drinking water for the baby.
If we go outside there also he takes care of the baby. He also helps with household chores. He always says that we are very lucky to have our daughter. I feel I am blessed with my husband who is always with me in my ups and downs
I cook and go to the office and my husband takes care Rushu like giving bath dressing him for school, packing his snacks box, drops and picks up at school (as my husband’s office is near to my home and school) and feeding at lunchtime. By the time I reach home again Rushu is neatly ready by father (evening bath) I feed food during the night.
I have a 2-year-old boy and I also have so many problems in my life but all my right hand is my cute husband. I am in a love/arrange marriage before marriage only love but after marriage love and carrying and more responsibility for me and my husband. Thank you God, for giving this person as my life partner.
