Husbands Stress Their Wives More Than Children Studies Say And the Reason Are Quite Serious
More often than not, it is a woman who ultimately faces the stress of a marriage once the honeymoon period is over and children come along. Women end up with the household workload and by default men since they may work assume they shouldn’t be doing anything. Parenthood combined with home management can result in undue stress for a woman leading to headaches, fatigue, anger and a host of other problems. Studies prove that it is husbands who actually contribute more to a wife’s stress than anything or anyone else.
1Studies revealed wives regarded their husbands as a major source of stress
One study found that 46% of wives declared that their children weren’t exactly their source of stress. It was their husbands who created their stress and that was not in any way connected with affairs, abuse or cheating. This is how husbands knowingly or unknowingly contribute more to their wives stress.
2A husband acts like an extra child
Yes, that true. A husband usually acts like an overgrown child till at least they are 45 years old. It was found in studies that a majority of men don’t mature till they are 43. This is reflected in their frivolous attitude regarding various issues, their behavior and how they interact with their own children.
One of the participants of the study, a wife obviously remarked that “A 7-year-old is going to be a 7-year-old. But a 35-year-old acting like a 7-year-old is more stressful because they should know better.” Most probably if a man is reading this, he will secretly agree.
3It is always the dads who get to play with their kids
It is always dads who usually have all the fun with children. This is because moms are busy looking after them and tending to household chores so by default a mom is viewed as a disciplinarian more than the dad. In fact, fathers are looked upon as friends and an accomplice who will take part or not react to their mischief and who is open to their fun ideas and will allow them too.
4Mothers are seen as the disciplinarian
Mothers are always seen as someone who is more concerned with matters of upbringing, food, discipline, health, education and child development. It is the woman who is someone who has to follow a daily routine of a household because she doesn’t, nothing ever will get done. Thus it is moms who don’t give into kids tantrums or wants and is always giving her kids instructions. The mom in a family is usually viewed as a bad cop and it is this factor that affects the children that eventually leads to a serious conflict between husband and wife.
5Both parents should agree on matters regarding kids
The only solution here is that both parents should stick to unity. They should be a mutual consensus on the discipline and routine of the family. If one parent makes a decision, the other parent should also abide by it. It is imperative that both parents act together and agree on any restrictions and prohibitions placed on children such as issue of bedtime or homework and study.
