Simple Proven Ways to Get Your Man to Do some Work Around the House

Introduction:Many times, men will get a little too comfortable in their own homes. There comes a point where they may just sit and watch TV all night after working, eating, and sleeping. Here are the top five ways to get your man to do some work around the house.

  • 01

    Love

    First of all, if you want to get your man to do some work around the house you should be very cautious on how you will go about this. A man likes to make their own decisions, so it would not be very wise to make them do anything.

    You should start off with this first step. Show your man a lot of loving. Always show your man how much you really love them and need them around in your life. Make sure that your man knows how much you miss them while they are working to earn a living and support the family.

  • 02

    Tell Your Man

    Men really enjoy watching TV and relaxing all night long after coming home from a hard day of work and then eating their wondrous dinners that their women have prepared for them.

    Men do not even think about the house needing repairs. Even if they do, they forget. Men need women to tell them what needs to be done.

    Tell your man what needs to be done around the home. Men really do not enjoy doing work around the house. Yet, it does need to be done.

    Remind your man about things that are in dire need of repair before they will end up costing even more money if they do not get repaired quickly.

  • 03

    Offer Help

    You can always offer to help your man while you are trying to get him to do some work around the house. Chances are that he will not want your help. It would be very helpful for you to at least offer this, though.

    Once your man sees that you are willing to help him to do these chores, he will be more apt to do them all by himself. It is not always things that need fixing around the home.

    Many times, it is not even a repair that needs to be done. You may just want your man to chip in a little with the chores. For instance, take out the garbage, and bring the garbage cans back in once your trash has been picked up.

  • 04

    Explain

    Very gently and kindly explain to your man that you are also very tired after working all day long. You may both be working full-time jobs to make ends meet. It does not really matter, though. Even if you work at home, being a mother and a housewife, there is no reason for you to be doing everything around the home all by yourself.

    A good man will understand this. It may take awhile to soak in, so just be very patient. Remind him of his chores, especially if you are both headed out the door and running late for a dinner and movie or some other event in your lives.

  • 05

    Talk This Out

    Aside from loving your man, telling him what needs to be done around the home, offering help, and explaining things to him, you may also need to talk this out.

    Give your man a say. Maybe he would rather cook and clean the dishes than to take out the trash. Some men are quite good cooks. There are many jobs to choose from that need to be done around the home.

    Getting your man to do some work around the house will be a lot easier once you try these simple, proven tips. He may even be happy to be involved in keeping your home clean and well maintained.

    I might withhold a meal until the chores got done. That is perhaps why there is no man in this house. You have solid things to do and hope they work to a better sharing of chores around the house.

    Nice list. Enjoyed reading it. I will have to remember this so that it sounds like it was his choice to help and not me nagging. :)
