Not sure how to make this a debate subject so I will just ramble along and see where it leads us.

One of my major per peeves: The idea that mean are inept idiots who don't know what they are doing without us woman folk to guild them.

I see it from time to time on various forums, ladies complaining that their DH's do every thing wrong (uh, no they just do things differently from how you may have done it).

Do you or have you every thought that your DH needed you around in order to make sure that he does things right?

Sure...some men are inept, as are some women.

I've told this story before, but it's about to happen again.

Well not only that...


Why is it considered "helping" when a man cooks?

>> I also think that the cliche "men can't multitask" is somewhat true. I think that men in general just aren't as good at multitasking as women and they aren't taught how to multitask. <<

I completely agree with this. I have given up being frustrated by it because there is no point to it!

so i was the mean mommy for awhile-i had to clean up lake hot chocolate one day and i said that was it-no more drinks in the room. slowly-the drinks started going in their room again-usually when i was at work and my hubby was in charge. then the pop got spilled. my hubby said no more drinks in the room now too...but i still have a feeling they will start sneaking back in there. my hubby is much more permissive than me. my kids "gave up" pop for lent. i would like to cut it out altogether. but i like a glass at lunch and my hubby drinks it all the time. so it will be at the house. and again my dh is more permissive than me. i cut it out for them back in october for about a month. then they started drinking more of it. i know kool aid isnt much better, but they actually dont drink a lot of it. usually its milk, juice or lemonade. they like apple juice best. thankfully they dont like grape juice that much

"One of my major per peeves: The idea that mean are inept idiots who don't know what they are doing without us woman folk to guild them."

I agree. Men don't do things the way that women do and then they get dumped on because of it. I also think that the cliche "men can't multitask" is somewhat true. I think that men in general just aren't as good at multitasking as women and they aren't taught how to multitask. So when they watch their kids that's all that they do. They don't do all the other things that moms do while they are home with the kids.

>> True - just because one doesn't clean much doesn't mean one doesn't know how or wouldn't do it if they cared to. <<

*nods*

I know very well how to clean. I don't have enough time to do it as often as I'd like, though, nor enough money to outsource the job.
