“I communicate to my son to cook and do household chores,” starts Nikkole ulun, a st cast member of MTV’s 16 and Pregnant, in a post to Facebook about her 6-year-old son, Lyle. Her tack seeks to not only share what Lyle is ca ble of — like cooking and laundry — but to cue rents that teaching children to become independent, productive colleagues of society starts at home.
Her reasons for teaching Lyle to cook and make a clean breast at a young age are hard to argue with:
Because household work isn’t righteous for women. Because one day he might be a single man, living on his own, who will actually have knowledge of how to do laundry and not eat takeout every night. Because one day he might want to touch a significant other with a meal cooked by his own hands. Because one day when he has kids and a spouse, he’s active to need to do his fair share around the home. Because I live in a initiation of people who complain that school didn’t teach us how to cook, do laundry, tie a tie, or y demands. Because teaching my son how to do these things and be a productive member of society both greatest the home and inside, starts with ME. Because it’s okay to let your stripling be a child but still teach them lifelong lessons along the way.
“My son determination never be too ‘manly’ to cook or do chores,” ulun says. “Remember well-springs, a man who believes he shouldn’t have to cook or do chores was once a boy who was never guided any better.”
