There is still a lot of people who think it’s the home is entirely the responsibility of the woman. Some men who do participate in the chores, expect to be shown real appreciation and be rewarded for helping out. To does men, I ask, when is the last time you thanked your wife after she finished cleaning the house, changed the linens, cooked, etc.? Thank your wife the same way you would like to be thanked.

keys-2251770_1920When you take care of your home, you aren’t helping your wife, you are doing your part. You both live in this home and it is only normal that you both share the responsibility of taking care of the household chores.

My husband does most of the cooking because he is really good at it and I’m not. I can cook pasta pretty well and do so whenever I can, but if I attempt anything else, one of our kids will usually pass a comment that it isn’t great. Soon they’ll be able to pitch in too and see that it’s not that easy to make everyone happy.

My husband does a lot and always looks surprised when I say thank you. I do so because I deal with Chronic pain which means that some days I can conquer the world, and some days even a simple task as cleaning the dishes is too painful to accomplish. I do feel guilty at times. If he was the type of man who still believed it was the role of the woman to take care of the home, resentment would be growing and our relationship wouldn’t fare well.

You are a couple, a team. You both live in the house. Each of you has strong points and weaker points.  Both of your should be giving a helping hand around the house, both of you should behave a real companion and not like a guest who just comes to eat, sleep, take his shower and satisfy his sexual needs…

Real change in our society begins in our homes, through our actions.
