Our expert says:
Wanting silence while h's studying is reasonable, and then work together to plan a way for this. Other people find a library or similar place where they can study, or a room where they can play music while they study. Or listen to music or educational tapes / discs with proper larger noise-cancelling earphones ?
Expecting complete silence while watching TV, when one has chosen to have kids, is unrealistic. Maybe if its not something you'd be watching too, perhaps your setup allows him to listen to the sound of the TV or DVD on headphones, too ?
And your suggestions also makes a lot of sense. If he will devote a generous portion of time to playing with the kids, they can get both tired and satisfied by quality Dad time, and then be more able to respect his request for quiet when he is studying or resting.
