All throughout history, mothers were considered more influential in the development of a child. This behavior comes from our ancestors – while men went to find food, women stayed home with their children and had more time to spend with them. This went on for millennia, and stopped once women gained the same rights as men.
As we all know, parenting is a difficult and complex task and never a job for one. Mothers are indeed closer with children and they’re more influential, but having the father around as well is key for the child’s proper development. According to recent research, women need their partner’s full support. If you don’t help them, they are twice as likely to stress over it, which can ruin your relationship.
The research discovered that women who don’t have much help from their partner are highly stressed, as they have too many obligations which can be tiring. A mother wears and cares for a child for 9 months before it is born. She has to carry for it for many years to come, and if she has to care for other things around the home, she will likely be overstressed.
Now, there’s also the notion about women raising their voice about this. Most women accept the mother responsibility in full and never ask for help, until they break down from all the stress. In fact, you should cooperate with your partner when raising a child if you want it to develop properly.
For men, it may be time to break free from our ancestral behavior – just ask your wife if she needs some help in order to keep your relationship healthy and raise your child as you should.
