In this, the women of the house is doing the housework and saying, “ If women resent their position, they only have themselves to blame. If men were only taught as boys to do things for themselves – this problem wouldn’t exist …” At this point her 6 to 8 year old son comes in and asks, “Hey, mom.. Could you get me a glass of Milk?”
After her previous outburst they would seem fighting words, wouldn’t you think? But no she answers with, “Sure, Mike … as soon as I get your room cleaned up.”
Funny hey? But how many of us are like that? We fuss and complain about our present situation; but then either don’t follow through with the right action or as in some cases that I have seen, actually refuse the help when offered, only to complain later that no one helps around the place.What about you? Are you making a rod for your own back like the mum above, by not setting some reasonable and responsible boundaries, and then sticking to them? What say you?
