so every weekend, my wife and I will take him to parks ..... Is it correct?
I think he should use simple present

Hello arishah,

You could use the present simple here to talk about a habit, but 'will' is also fine. We can use 'will' to talk about typical behaviour. It is very similar in meaning to the present simple but has an additional sense of 'we choose to do this'.

 

Best wishes,

i didn´t undestand this question "The speaker finds raising his son stressful." Could someone, explain me?

I think that the author meant that paternity is not heavy for him

Hello minchas,

The verb 'find' can be used to talk about how we think or feel about something, and that is how it is used in this sentence. Another way to say it is 'Raising his son is stressful for the speaker'.

Does that help? If not, please tell us which part of the sentence is difficult for you.

All the best,
