Relationship Q&A: I Get No Help From My Husband

Do you feel more like a maid than a wife and mother? You’re not alone.

In this LHJ Q&A session, Dr. Heitler addresses the key concept of being teammates. It may sound silly, but when it comes to the dision of  labor in a marriage, you need to work together!

Dr. Heitler suggests creating an official task list. Then, sit down together and go through the list, taking turns selecting tasks.  Keep at it until the whole list has been accounted for.  Whatever you do, don’t criticize your husband’s way of doing things. Instead offer encouragement for his efforts, and be careful not to gradually start t o pick up or re-do his tasks.
