Quiet family nest? Hardly, rather, a field where harvesting is in full swing. Cooking, washing, cleaning, family members do not even consider it necessary to wash a cup after themselves. Familiar situation? The problem of the distribution of responsibilities in the family is not new; many couples with and without children find it difficult to resolve such a situation. When it comes to alimony rights and obligations of family members, then you can achieve their execution through the courts, but what about domestic issues? You will not stand with a whip over everyone, forcing them to take part in household chores.
How to distribute responsibilities in the family?
Of course, there are families in which the rights and obligations of their members are distributed by themselves; no efforts are needed to establish order in the house. But such alliances are not so frequent, and it can be difficult for two people to agree on who takes out the trash on which day, and when the children arrive, the situation gets completely out of control. But there are ways to get out of the problem period, here are several ways to share responsibilities in the family, you need to choose the one that suits your family best in terms of temperament and character.
- You can take the path of least resistance — do everything in turn, one week, another week.
- There is a variant of the traditional distribution of responsibilities in the family — the wife takes care of the house, the husband earns money. A good option when the husband is the head of the family, a stone wall, a protector and a breadwinner. But such an order is unlikely to suit families in which the spouse dominates or equality reigns.
- If the wife builds a career and brings in most of the family budget, then it is quite natural that she has practically no time left for cooking and cleaning. In this case, there are only two ways out — the husband becomes a housewife or household duties assigned to the employee.
- With equality in the family (that is, material support lies on the shoulders of both spouses), and duties should be distributed equally. Let everyone in the family do what he can and knows how to do. Cooking should be done by someone who knows how to do it, everyone can wash the dishes (with the exception of small children and bedridden patients), both grown-up children and the husband can take part in the cleaning.
Discuss the issue of distribution of responsibilities at the family council, just do not agree, out of kindness, to again carry the whole heap of household chores.
