Are there any universal "duties" a sahp has or a wohp has?

But if both parents are home, you said you still believe that the sahp should do the bulk of those duties....both parents are home and available, why the sahp?

Maybe it would help if you knew that I consider all of these things to fall under the heading "household management".

ITA with you that the person who is at home more should do more of the household chores. I do not understand why some of the women I know who are FT SAHMs complain about their DHs not doing much housework. I have to bite my tongue before I say "Suck it up and deal with it!"

You consider bill paying to be a 'Dad duty'? Interesting. I've always thought of it as a traditionally female role.

Even as a PTWOH, I expect to do the majority of the housework. It just makes sense to me that SO's much more limited time at home should focus on spending time with the baby/family rather than doing the dishes. He pitches in at the weekends of course, but I try to have most of it done by then.

So, if one parent works outside the home they are working all day, and if another parent stays home they are not working.

I read your question too fast and didn't see the word "both". I thought you were asking if a parent that is home all day should be responsible for the bulk of the household duties. I can go back and edit my statement in that thread if desired. My statement in this thread stands.
