A Good Husband Does Housework!!!


In the real world, most men do not do housework. While studies from the Institute for Social Research at the University of Michigan confirm that this generation of couples do half the amount of housework their parents did, most of those chores are still shouldered by women. Is there a way to prevent everyday skirmishes over home-front responsibilities from escalating into full-scale wars, and still get him to put the dishes in the dishwasher? Let's look at both sides of the problem:

Her Side: “I'm tired of doing all of it all the time.” “It's the psychic energy that is so draining. I have to be responsible for things even if I'm not in charge of them!” “How come he can fix a car engine but can't figure out how to put the toilet paper on the roll?”

His Side: “When I do the grocery shopping, she says I buy the wrong tomato sauces, and then yells at me,” “She'll find one spot of food on the pot and yell, 'Is this what you call clean?'” “The fact is that I can't remember to put my socks in the hamper is not a personal attack against her. I just.... forget.”

Even the best counselors don't have a foolproof recipe for success on this one. But here are a few suggestions:

1. Figure out exactly what needs to be done and who's doing it. Keep a log of everything for a week down to the minute details: Who walked the dog, who did the laundry, who folded the clothes, who took the car in for repair, and so on. It could well be that a spouse is doing more than you gave him or her credit for. In that case, make a point of appreciating each other's efforts. By not taking chores, large or small, for granted, you create a spiral of appreciation that, in time, can erase resentment.

2. Train your kids. Instead of fostering helplessness in the next generation, make sure that your children, boys as well as girls, grow up believing that sharing the physical as well as the emotional chores at home is just what considerate people do.

3. Let go. Sometimes, when it comes to housework and children, women are their own worst enemies. You asked Daddy to dress the baby and the kid comes out with a top and a bottom that does not match? Who cares? You wanted him to do the shopping? Then let him do it his way. The principle here is simple: If you give up responsibility for a chore, you have to give up control over it, too. Besides, some things just aren't worth quibbling over.

Waliz said...

hey eddyra..looked like you found your way out here..at last..tq

Shawal said...

Yes, a good husband does housework just like me... Coz i' am a housedaddy...!!

Waliz said...

i am proud to hear that Shawal..you are one of the kind..i envy you..

Gerri said...

housework should be a shared thing. When I get home from work I try and do bits and pieces now and then. My wife stays at home with our 15 week old baby and that is a big job in itseld and does not leave time to do anything else.

Waliz said...

better do little bit here n there than do nothing at all...right Gerri?

NIHAL said...

Wow, I didn't know that I fit into this category so well - "In the real world, most men do not do housework"???

Now I know why my wife is always harping at me *he he he* :))

Anyway, I would like to wish you and the family, Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri ... maaf zahir dan batin, dan semoga bahagia selalu.

Waliz said...

hey nihal..glad to see u here..thanks for the wish and dont forget to help okay?

kenshiz said...

yeah, a good husband MUST get into housework to help his wife. ^_^

Vijay said...

Nice blog Waliz, to be honest, I am a man and really love to do all housework. I think men are more suitable for housework (especially cleaning) than women. Men should do all labour oriented housework such as vacumming, mopping/scrubbing floors, bathroom and kitchen upkeep, laundry-ironing etc.

If my wife is cooking, I make sure that I do the dishes, clean the table and kitchen afterwards without being told.

I would love to see my wife learning newer things like music, piano, enjoying her womanhood or just relaxing than cleaning bathrooms. I never allow her to clean bathrooms/toilets. Someone has to clean bathrooms, why not me?

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
[b][/b]
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
