trying to find new ways to divide housework between both parents.
so interested in how you divide labour especially if one works out of the home and one is a stay at home parent.
find shortcuts to avoid extra work eg children sitting to eat rather than walking all over the place with crackers in hand
or with some ideas/structure of when and how often various housework is done
or who does what
especially if one works long hours and one is home all day.
so that the one working long hours out of the home, doesnt come home to helping with most of the housework as well as the night dinner bath bed routine as well as more tasks that they take are of.
when the shoe was on the other foot the other parent expected to come home to a tidy home.
noone is saying that being at home with children isnt work, but many would hope that a load of washing or dishes or tidying could be done while kids are happy.
maybe some save vaccuuming for the weekends when a home tidy is done together, maybe the stay at home mum takes care of that, maybe they expect the working parent to do night routine plus most of the tidying cleaning. I'm wondering how others divide the chores and childcare please when one works and one is home all day.thanks.
