5 duties you should never let your house-help do

20 May 2016, 08:25 Ann Mwirkia

Nairobi - With current economic set up where women also go to work unlike in the early sixties where they could stay at home to do home chores and take care of the children house helps have been come in to give a helping hand. Despite the fact the you are busy and held up with a lot of work, coming back home tired here are some of the roles you got to put the house out of them.

1.Attending to your bedroom The bedroom is a  sacred room just meant for you and your husband as much as possible attend to it yourself. Duties such as cleaning up, arranging and making the bed should be done by the wife alone.

2.Washing your underwear. These are garments that no one apart from your hubby should see so it's respectable that you as a wife do the washing yourself. It's even so disgusting to let someone wash them for you.

3. Taking water to the bathroom for your husband.The wife is the soul helper of her husband and so matters pertaining the husband has to be done by the wife. Taking water to the bathroom should be done by the wife as a show of care and compassion. 

4. Taking the child to the clinic and the salon. The children's health should be a concern to the mother and thus it's her responsibility to take the child to the clinic especially after injections when the kid is in pain and crying they are supposed to be there to make them feel better. Salonist will always be doing their jobs and will not care about the child lamentation so it's good when your present.

5.Serving food to your hubby. Sometimes you may come home late and fail to prepare food for your family it can be understandable but serving your husband should only be done by the wife as her role.
