H expects your child of 6 to be spoon-fed rather than to eat by himself ? How ludicrous and crippling for the childc ! Surely I misunderstood what you said there ? YOur husband seems to have bizarre ideas about infantilizing your child, and treating the lad as incompetent, which in turn teaches the child to feel unable to trust himself or to be able to do simple self-care.
You are, as Sam suggests, entirely normal and reasonable, and an excellent mother. He may be of an obsessive personality type and pernickety as regards how he chooses to spend his time, but to insist that you teach a normal child of 6 as though he were an incapable infant, is ridiculous and potentially damaging. He needs to be in counselling himself, to gain more realistic ideas of the real world
