A few decades back in Indian household it was a common thing that Men will do the job and women will take care of daily household chores. But with time things changed, women started taking technical education, they were more willing to do a job than simply sitting at home and doing cooking & cleaning.
Slowly and gradually family system also got changed, earlier there more joint families and women were expected to dedicate their life looking after family needs, but now we see more of nuclear families, a small family with husband, wife, and kids.
So with the change of the family system, many other things also got changed.
There are times when a wife is ill or not well then the husband has to step in and do household chores.
And nowadays after taking technical education women do not want to sit at home, they also want to pursue their carrier like their male counterparts.
So when a husband and wife both are sharing the load of earning money, then they should also share the load in household chores.
Because SHARING IS CARING.
Nowadays because of change in the economy and high standard of living it is quite difficult to run a household with a single income, so wives do step out of the house to help their husbands to have a decent monthly income. But she has to manage both home and her job.
In such situations it is very much required that husband should also help them in their daily household chores, It develops a strong bond of Love and affection between spouses as wife feels that her husband is caring for her.
This also generated a positive atmosphere in the home.
Kids also learn good things from their parents that we should work together and help each other.
We can also teach kids to help their parents by doing simple things at home like taking care of younger siblings, helping mom in cleaning and cooking, Thus this way we can give good teaching to our kids.
In my case I am very lucky as my husband is very caring and supportive , when I am ill he does everything starting from cooking, washing clothes and taking care of kids.
In fact, during weekends he wants to cook something different so that I can get a day break from cooking.
And we can spend more quality time together rather than me indulged in endless works at home.
My kids have learned good things from their dad then when somebody is ill we should take care of them and allow them to have rest and let them get well soon.
This also helps to maintain work-life balance for both the partners.
