Throughout history, women have been considered more influential in a child’s life, and science has proven that this behavior descends from our ancestors.
Millennia ago, men went to hunt while women stayed behind and took care of the children until they matured. This behavior was the same until women rightfully gained the same rights as men.
Parenting is not an easy task, and it’s never a job for a single person. However, mothers are closer with their children and more influential as they have a gift they develop through a lot of experience.
But, it doesn’t have to be that way – according to new studies, women need their partner’s support when raising a child, ant not helping them can stress them out twice as much as children and ruin the relationship.
Taking care of a child while taking care of other tasks at home is a responsibility mothers accept while they’re still pregnant. However, that much work can cause a lot of stress, and by not helping, men don’t make things easier. According to experts, cooperating partners can raise a child better and improve their relationship as well.
Of course, women must ask for help – many wives accept their responsibilities and are unable to finish every task each day just because they don’t ask their husbands to help. The lack of support can raise their stress levels and is pretty unhealthy for a relationship.
Knowing this, maybe now’s the time to break free from our ancestral behavior – simply ask your wife if she needs any help if you want to keep your relationship healthy and raise your child properly.
