In the typical African setting, it is a common believe that men are meant to provide for the house while the women will take care of every other responsibility around the house which includes raising the children. It was a non negotiable rule and has been successfully passed down to the present generation. If this rule worked well for our forefathers, i am sure it’s because each party played their roles well. I am not sure that women worried much about how to put food on the table or how to put money in the pocket.
In this present day, from what i have observed , we have an increasing number of women trying to put food on the table than men. Yet there are men who have shifted their responsibilities to women and can still not do as little as clearing the table after having a meal. If women can go through the hustle of the day and still be expected to play mother,sister or wife role at the end of the day, shouldn’t men carry out small responsibilities like cleaning,cooking,bathing the kids,shopping for the house at least once in awhile?
I believe that men should learn how to assist with domestic chores. Let’s talk about it and let’s know what you think.
