How do you feel when your other half refuse to do the dirty jobs when it comes to raising children? I was reading some parenting articles today and came across this article from whattoexpect.com. Well, there is this hollywood star, Matthew McConaughey, admitted that he never change dirty diapers for his children.
I was appalled with what I read. How a man spell his love to his children when he don’t even want to change a dirty diaper for his child? Well, parenting is not a job for one, but a job for both. Gone were the days where male chauvinism rules the household. We no longer lives in an era where only man bring back the food for the family. If a man do not shares the household responsibilities and involves in upbringing of the children, what sort of father is that? The job of taking care of a child should be shared equally between both parents.
I’m a learning dad. I’d not say that I’m contributing a lot in the household, but when I’m at home in the weekend, I’d helping out in any household chores. Back to the changing diaper topic, do you guys really found that it is a dirty job to do? Personally, I don’t think so. In fact, I enjoy doing it. There are times when I want to change my boy’s diaper and he shoot his urine up onto my face. These are hilarious moments that I won’t forget until the end of my life. For me, these are the precious bonding times that you share with your growing child.
For those who told me that he/she do not want to change a diaper for his/her child, I can only say “what a shame!”
