4 Ways Guys Benefit From Doing Housework

Ladies, you might want to pass this on to your hubbies.

According to new research, there are more stay-at-home dads now more than ever, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. Just like women like to keep a healthy work-life balance, men should also be able to benefit from it without being ridiculed. It’s actually empowering for them, too, to take a more active role in their households.

Here are four ways men can benefit from supporting women:

1. They will be more successful at work.
Diversity in teams leads to better performance. When a company has a family-friendly environment wherein both men and women are treated equally, employees are more likely to be productive and willing to continue doing their jobs well.

2. They will live longer and be happier.
According to a recent study, men who get to spend more time with their families are more satisfied with their lives than those whose careers take first priority. They are also more motivated to work harder to provide for their loved ones. Moreover, studies have shown that men and women who provide care and emotional support for their partners will experience a longevity boost.

3. It will lead to more sex.
Some women are turned on by the fact that their men can handle a pan and a stove just as well as they can handle, say, their cars…and other goodies (if you know what we mean). Statistics show that couples who share household chores and breadwinning equally are more likely to have stable marriages.

4. They will help boost their daughters’ self-esteem.
Little girls look up to their daddies, so when they grow up with fathers who play an active role in their lives growing up, they become more empowered. When they see their fathers doing chores and challenging stereotypes, they are inspired to aim higher in life and not settle for jobs that society deems “fit” for women. 

“What mattered most was what fathers did, not what they said; no amount of saying ‘you can do anything’ is as compelling for a daughter as witnessing true partnership between her parents,” wrote Sheryl Sandberg, author of Lean In: Women, Work, And The Will To Live, and business professor Adam Grant in a New York Times op-ed. “For a girl to believe she has the same opportunities as boys, it makes a big difference to see Dad doing the dishes.”
