In modern culture, a lot of things are categorized as belonging to boys or females.
While most boys are supposed to be handy with tools and engage in sports, women are always expected to know how to cook, do laundry, and clean the house. People find it strange and humorous when boys or men perform tasks that are perceived as being the realm of women.
A mother from Michigan named Nicole Boulogne faced criticism when she posted pictures of her 7-year-old kid doing the dishes and cleaning the house. Many questioned her parenting, arguing that males shouldn’t help out around the house or perform other chores because it is the realm of women.
Nicole, a single mother of two, does her best to teach her kids to be independent. Although she takes care of everything around the house, she believes that teaching her kids to do things on their own will help them in the long run. Her elder child is capable of doing some basic housework, yard work, and cooking. She intends to teach her second child, who is still a toddler, how to do the same when she is older. When asked why she taught her child to behave in this way, she gave the appropriate explanation.
