Husbands, the Problem is Your Lack of Critical Thinking

Not Your Wife’s (Apparent) Lack of Communication

Wives are tired, and we need help. Society is changing, and expectations of women are changing and increasing all around us, yet the burden of unpaid work still rests on married women’s shoulders, and it is a weight men seem to hesitate to share equitably.

“(Simply) tell us what to do, and we will help you at home and with the children,” is a comment I hear so much, in so many forums from so many men and sometimes women who like traditional family and household structures.

Women? Communicate MORE?

Personally, I do not think I could be a more clear, articulate, and assertive communicator.

Why not, you, the man, start thinking critically on the home front and childcare front, a skill I see you all utilize in specific environments or with certain people with great flair, agility and confidence.

Why do wives have to tell their husbands what is needed at home?




I write about issues that are near and dear to my heart, with the hope that my stories, experiences, and struggles may empower others.
