Nigerians are forever full of advice for house wives. But what of house husbands?It’s not like they don’t exist. I mean what will you call your Uncle Tade that has refused to look for a job for the last ten years while his wife works to provide for the whole family?
Because nobody ever talks about it, house husbands in Nigeria don’t seem to know their roles.Nigerian parents and pastors are oddly silent on this topic.
Since no one else will offer it, I’m here with Sage advice for all the house husbands in Nigeria.Now, gather round. It’s time to learn how to be a really really good house husband.
First of all, it’s your sole responsibility to get the kids ready for school, drop them off, pick them up, supervise their homework and feed them.Because if you really love them, then you have to do it.
You have to wake up before her so that you can start doing one or two things around the house before she wakes up.Who will make her breakfast before she goes to work? Or you want her to go to work on an empty stomach?
Make sure there is a hot meal waiting on the table for your wife before she comes back from work.And it must always be freshly made. Stale food is for losers. And you’re not a loser, are you?
If she decides out of the goodness of her heart to help you around the house you had better be grateful.
Do you think it’s easy? After all the hard day’s job.
