nowadays if i am at home,i am supposed to help my mom with the housework because i am a “girl”.a very good excuse indeed but perhaps i don’t quite like the idea of doing such work.I can sympathise with my mom who does 95% of the work,the rest is shared among me,my dad & bro.But during holidays,i just become too lazy to do household work.Its true everywhere.most of the past generation moms do all the house chores.Its very rare to find any male member of the family helping her.
though i am lazy,but when i think from this perspective,i get an energy from somewhere,and place myself in front my mother to help her in anyway.She is all alone doing everything for the family,she deserves such help from our side.She makes our favourite dishes,she cleans our room if we forget doing it our self.Either she washes our clothes herself or strains her back while doing on a washing machine.She is the one who wakes up every morning early, before everyone else does.She is the only one who goes to sleep after everyone has slept.So many reasons!!!!
Yet we don’t care to help her out.We just bring some gifts on her birthday or mother’s day & that’s it.We forget about her.To be honest,i personally felt that she would be more happy if she sees her family helping her the way she helped build the family.
Husbands:take care of your wife,Don’t shower her with just gifts,she would be more happy if you give time to her,talk to her,sit and laugh with her.Help her with household work.Let her take rest on weekends and surprise her with some culinary delights you made yourself.Even if it gets burnt or doesn’t taste good,she will realise that you at least made an effort. :-)A woman likes it very much if her man takes the role of a woman in a family sometimes.
Children:Don’t take your mother to be granted.Help her in every way.If you know cooking,go ahead.Try to do your own work,don’t just yell from your room “mom! please get this done…”Let your mom take rest on weekends.Just like you look forward to weekends,she does too.Maybe go out together and have a family fun.
Guys!nowadays,the girl you are dating or maybe about to date,just remember this fact,that 95% of the girls are going to work after marriage.Don’t expect that she will act like your mother.She won’t get time to do the household work.Just like you ,she will return home at 8pm.She will be tired just like you so don’t expect her to rush off to kitchen to make dinner while you slog in front the TV.Go and make dinner together.Help her in making breakfast in the morning.Distribute the work evenly.Com mon`Just like you she also studied hard to become something in life,her parents didn’t let her work or teach her work,because just like you she too was studying for her degree. she is a girl,doesn’t mean she knows every household work.She tries hard to adjust,but please don’t try her always.take initiative and love her for what she is.Many men don’t understand this.Please try to treat her as equal and i mean really equal,not just verbally.
My brother and i have been raised up with this notion.To be honest my brother is the best cook in the home just after my mother,followed by my father.My brother and father,help her in the chores in the evening when they return from office.on weekends,one of them cooks.When i stay at home,i make sure i am always there when she needs me.I am not saying every family should be like ours,but what i am trying to say,make an effort!!!
