Helping around the house

By Dr Bill Maier

Hey dad ... still think raising babies is a mother’s job? Well think again!

The days where mum does all the work at home while dad sits back in his recliner are long gone.

Taking care of kids is a tough job and it’s a father’s job to step in and help. Instead of plopping in your chair at the end of the day, why not roll up your sleeves and give mum a hand around the house. And don’t wait for her to ask you. Look for things that need doing — like laundry or dishes or vacuuming.

Sometimes what she needs most is a little adult conversation — especially after playing with a two-year-old all day. Why not make her a cup of tea, find a comfortable chair and ask her about her day? Trust me, she’ll love you for it!

While you’re at it, let her know how much you appreciate all the things she does for you and the kids.
