You know, my book goes on and on about the division of housework labor between men and women and how that has changed over time.
It says women do less housework now, but men barely picked up the slack.
The give the credit to things like technology, hiring outside help, having the definition of a “clean house” change, and eating out at restaurants/eating frozen dinners more.
What I want to know is how much of the slack has also been taken up by the children doing chores.
Or if that’s changed.
‘Cause I know I did the dishes and my own laundry more than my mom ever did.
