Domestic God

A study by sociologists shows that men who share in the housework, and make time with their kids for more than the traditional sports etc., have better adjusted offspring.

They also get laid more.

I do most of what little housework gets done around here (it’s only fair as Daz and Emily are out breadwinning) now I just have to find a woman to appreciate it.

There is one point in the report I have to take issue with- According to their research, fathers still do less than mothers, but they are increasingly likely to assume at least some responsibility for tasks like shopping and driving the kids to school. No kid of mine is getting driven to school, unless it’s on a bus with a load of other schoolchildren. The school run is stupid, wastes the time of the parents and other road users and doesn’t make the brats any safer. As soon as I know where any child of mine is going to school I’m going to set up a Safe Routes to School group or whatever is required. If I do it a couple of years in advance then it should be running smoothly by the time the sprogs need it.
