Women Aren't Nags—We're Just Fed Up

For Mother's Day I asked for one thing: a house cleaning service. Bathrooms and floors specifically, windows if the extra expense was reasonable. The gift, for me, was not so much in the cleaning itself but the fact that for once I would not be in charge of the household office work. I would not have to make the calls, get multiple quotes, research and vet each service, arrange payment and schedule the appointment. The real gift I wanted was to be relieved of the emotional labor of a single task that had been nagging at the back of my mind. The clean house would simply be a bonus.https://www.harpersbazaar.com/culture/features/a12063822/emotional-labor-gender-equality/?src=socialflowFBHBZ&utm_campaign=socialflowFBHBZ&utm_medium=social-media&utm_source=facebook&fbclid=IwAR2Rnmjj1Yn9oDy3qQDoiyLuL1I6uy_f1KBErGwVZTx52_ho0qDlGL6w36Y

There will come to a point that women, especially mothers will nag just to be heard or noticed. Most of the times in a household, a mother's welfare is not the same as the children or the man in the house. They are expected to do the household chores alone while taking care of everybody. That's really tiresome. A little help will go a long way.

That's an individual choice. And even if a woman chooses to be a stay at home mom, or a man a stay at home dad, partnership is still required.

Yes it is, I am a stay at home mom and each person has their role in the partnership or it doesn’t work. Sometimes I get overwhelmed and or fed up but then I remember I get to stay at home with the kids and don’t have to work and do everything else.

Like I said: that's an individual choice (not one I support but that's just me and for me). As long as you're happy :) The article is about fake partnership and unequal distribution of work inside a home, when"work hours" are done. Where I come from, women don't stay home so not really fair we still do most of the housework. Like I use to say: more work has to mean more money. Otherwise not worth my time.

I'm a working mom and I feel this way. We both work but for some reason I'm like obligated to do all the mental labor and the hubby could just watch basketball or play games after work. And all working moms including my own mom feel the same way.
