Family Help With Cleaning
Family help? Superwoman?
Sometimes women feel like they do everything without any help (or appreciation). Although the article is about geting husbands to help, it should go without saying that when we can get family help from everyone, the world is a much nicer place to be.
These instructions are from eHow.com. I thought it was amusing they listed the instructions as "Moderately Challenging" under the category of difficulty. Depending on your family, it may be easy or impossible!
However, these steps are a good place to start getting family help.
How to Get a Husband to Help at Home
Sometimes wives feel like they do it all. Husbands aren't purposefully expecting their wives to do everything, but some husbands just don't help around the house.
You've tried everything to get your husband to help at home but it just isn't working. If you follow these guidelines, you might be able to get your husband to help around the home.
[Difficulty: Moderately Challenging]
- Step One Talk to your husband about how his lack of help is making you feel. Let him know that you feel as if you are left to take care of everything. Try not to use a condescending or blaming sort of voice.
- Step Two Assert yourself and make sure that your husband knows you're serious that things have to change. If you don't put your foot down, then he might think you're just in one of your moods or it's PMS. Sometimes they just don't realize how serious it is and need a nudge to understand it from your point of view.
- Step Three Write a note to your husband describing how you feel. Sometimes things sink in deeper for a man when he reads things at his own pace and in his desired tone. It also assures that all his focus is on what you have to say.
- Step Four Think about what your husband does do around the house. Maybe he takes care of the yard, works on the cars or fixes leaky plumbing as a way of contributing around the house. Be sure that you're not just expecting too much of him.
- Step Five Check your expectations. Perhaps your husband works hard all day in a physically demanding job or long hours with excessive overtime, and he really may be too exhausted to help. Lower your expectations or wait until the weekend to ask him to help.
