How Fathers Can Chip In More at Home
As a married father, keeping your house clean should be as much your job as your wife's. Sadly, this is lost on a lot of men. Too many men still see most "domestic" chores as a woman's work, a notion that is not only horribly sexist but bad for any relationship. If you want to keep your partner happy and live in a clean home, you need to do your part. Here are some things you can do to chip in around the house.
Pepare Meals Beforehand
One great way to help out around the house and save some time is to come up with a week's worth of meal plans on Sunday. If you can prepare any of these meals beforehand, do so. If not, buy all of the ingredients and have them ready to go when it comes time for dinner.
Clean When Your Partner Cleans
If your partner is the one who regularly cleans the house, give them a hand and clean when they clean. It will make the whole process go by much faster, and it might even be enjoyable to work with someone else.
Do A Quick Check Before Going to Bed
One great way to make sure that your house stays clean is to do a quick sweep of your home before going to bed. Check the kitchen for any dirty dishes or the living room for anything left on the floor. As long as you've kept up with the rest of your chores, this won't take long and will result in less work that you need to do in the morning.
Do As Much as You Can When You're Home Alone
Depending on your schedule, you might not have a lot of time home alone. When you do find yourself in an empty house, take the time to clean up a little bit. Even if you only have time to tidy up one room, it will mean a lot to your partner.
Make Chores Routine
Honestly, the best way to ensure that you do your fair share of the chores at home is if you make it part of your regular routine. Come up with a weekly schedule of chores that need to be done and who has to do them. Make sure that you're doing your fair share, and build a routine around them. You can even make some activities part of a workout routine if they're strenuous enough. Above all else, the important thing is that you do your part. It's your home, and you should want it to look its best.
