“The society always expects a woman to naturally multitask’ – Unknown Quote
The quote is so true and relevant even today. The woman of the 21st Century manages her home, kids, and career too. She can think and multi-task even at home while doing chores. But is it solely the responsibility of a woman to keep her house clean especially during the current Pandemic where all the members are at home and the work has doubled. In the current COVID – 19 situation, we are moving forward day by day with different types of crises. Everyone is working from home, so why shouldn’t we expect the same from the man of the house? Lets #SharetheLoad and spread some Love.
The Changing Society
If we talk about old times, we see only women doing all household activities. Let bygones be bygones. The world is changing so why shouldn’t our outlook and mindset towards responsibilities of the housewife change. The lockdown has certainly shown a shift in thinking patterns and mindset of men; they are taking initiatives to help at home and showing more interest in household activities too.
Best Tips to Share The Load
1. Teach them Young
Mothers need to take this initiative in training their sons to take equal part in household chores. From clearing the dining table, keeping the room tidy and even helping out with the laundry. Wake up Moms!! Let’s teach them young.
2. Equality in Marriage
Marriage is a bond of trust, the relationship between two individuals has to be equal and so is the work load. It should be shared between the two partners. Women need to rest too, isn’t it only fair?
3. Home Chores have no Gender
No job is gender-specific. If women can go to work then men can also #Sharetheload at home. And when a husband and wife work together, the stress definitely diminishes.
My #ShareTheLoad Inspiring Story
Blessed to be born in a family when men have shared the burden of household chores along with their wives. Mom and me discuss for hours the debatable question; Was it the upbringing? or the circumstances our family man were put into? Guess it was a combination of all the factors.
Nonetheless, I am thankful to God for this change many women want to see in their homes. My Dad is a great help in the kitchen and also does his bit by starting the washing machine cycle and helps fold the clothes. This eases Mom’s pressures especially as both are senior citizens and housework can be really tough. Especially when we all are stuck inside the house during Lockdown and cannot take the help of maids.
My husband too loves to manage the laundry department including washing, drying, and folding. In fact he manages it better than me.
I marvel both these men in my life for being so particular and caring with regards to the entire process of laundry and clothes care. I wish them both a very “Happy Fathers Day“.
