Dear Massi,  I don’t know how to put this nicely, but my wife is a bit thick.
It’s embarrassing introducing her to anyone.

All she talks about is her makeup, or contouring or how many likes she got on her Instagram posts.

Her idea of reading is a Snapchat article.

I’m trying to set a good example to my kids but it’s confusing for them when their 40-year-old mum sits around in the evening using Snapchat filters whilst they are doing their homework.

I don’t know what to do.

Massi says, Your wife is entitled to enjoying her own interests without being judged so harshly for them.

Just because your areas of interest differ from hers, it does not mean that you should be so critical about her.

Why not include your wife in your activities and discuss your own reading material with her so that you have more things in common to talk about. 

In terms of using social media when children are doing homework, suggest to your wife that a phone free time be implemented when children are doing homework so that they are not distracted.
