Husband will be away on business for a week: he does everything possible to help his wife out with the chores before leaving (+VIDEO)
April 24, 2023
The world of social media has literally opened the doors to our homes: all of us now share things that, before Facebook or Instagram, we wouldn't have dreamed of making public. Thanks to this trend, we have the opportunity to compare our daily lives with those of others and evaluate how well (or not) we are doing.
One case that has garnered a lot of attention online is that of @world.shaker - a husband and father who shared via Instagram, a video about what he had done at home to help relieve his wife's burden just before he had to be away on a six-day business trip.
In the video, the husband showed what he had done before leaving: "I have vacuumed the house, washed and folded all the laundry. After putting our oldest daughter to bed, I plan to wash the dishes so that you have clean dishes ready. Since I usually prepare dinner for our young children, I have also prepared their breakfast, so that it will be ready in the morning. And I have also prepared 5 changes of clothes for the kids," he said.
The father explained that choosing clothes for his children in advance is not easy: "It's not just about combinations or items that go well together. I also looked at the weather forecast to choose the clothes: Wednesday, it's t-shirts and light trousers because it will be hot. It will be cold on Friday, so thicker pants, long-sleeved shirts and sweats," he explained.
Finally, he also thought about how he could give his wife a rest when he returned and gave her a little surprise: "I booked a hotel room for her, so that she can have some time for herself after I return. It's little things like this that have a big, positive impact," he commented. Many people, especially women, praised this husband and father, some stating "he is a rock-star of a husband".
It's publicizing acts like this that helps to debunk the stereotypical beliefs about gender roles and will help to raise awareness around the fact that it is mutual cooperation that make the world a more harmonious, well-balanced place to live in.
