Mothering is Harder Than I Thought | Part 4Oct 04
How Is A Mom To Get Help
Many moms today because of the economy are working outside the home. There are also many moms who are having to work from home to bring in extra income. The problem is that statistics show that most of the time it is the women who are still coming home from work to do all of the house work and cooking and dealing with the kids. This is not a slam on men, most don’t know how they can help. They probably didn’t observe it in their home or are afraid to mess up the system.
There is a way to create a team for the family especially when both parents are working. That is encouragement! Don’t be afraid to ask your spouse to do something. Most men would happily help if they knew what their wife needed help with. Then we need to encourage when they help. This is another area of struggle for many women. Many of us are very particular in how we want things done and nitpick if someone else does it. We need to learn to be grateful and express the gratitude for a job done, not complain how it wasn’t done right. Make sure you are taking the time to express gratitude for help offered to you!
