Let’s talk about house chores

House shared is a key to a good and healthy marriage.

By house chores we mean a job or a piece of work that is often boring and unpleasant  in the house but needs to be done according to Cambridge English Dictionary.

Having to do house chores with toddlers in tow is very hard and  physically consuming, especially if you do it all alone. This has led to the sickness and untimely death of many women. Continue reading

Let’s talk about house chores

The home is made up of the man, woman and their children(if there is any). The word ‘house chore’  comes from a combination of two separate words (house and chore). Since the home is made up of both sexes, why then do we limit chores to females (girls,ladies, women)?
Every inhabitant of the home is supposed to be responsible for the chores, which must not leave out anyone. Continue reading
