Description
My job is more stressful than your's. I'm just not very good at domestic stuff. Your standards are too high. I never learned how to do this chore. Have you heard one or more of the above excuses in the past month? Are you sick of your husband's avoidance tactics regarding housework and parenting? If you answered yes to either of these questions, you need this book. The Lazy Husband is a hands-on guide to understanding and changing men's attitudes towards domestic work and childcare. Dr. Joshua Coleman, author and clinical psychologist, understands that a happy marriage is a balanced marriage. And now, in his refreshingly honest and straightforward style, Coleman reveals exactly how women can motivate their husbands to become better partners and better fathers.By outlining and defining the various types of lazy husbands, Dr. Joshua Coleman teaches women how to understand where their husbands are coming from and enact change. Some Lazy Husband types include:* The Boy-Husband: This husband wants to be taken care of, and pretends to be incompetent around the house.* The Perfectionist Husband: This husband wants the house and the kids to look perfect, but doesn't want to do the work himself.*The Angry Husband: This husband keeps his wife at bay with his irritability, anger, or intimidation.From here, Coleman develops type-specific plans for change. By following these proactive plans, you too can achieve a happy, well-balanced marriage. Just remember, you can do less by getting your husband to do more.
