Many dads out there have the best of intentions when it comes to supporting their wives. However, those intentions can get easily turned askew with a single question:
“Is there anything I can do?”
Most likely any mom or default parent reading this sentence is instantly triggered by a time when they were asked this less-than-helpful question, which actually does little to take any load off.
One dad (@dadwise.co) has some advice: stop asking that question.
Instead, he suggests dads should “look around the house, analyze the situation, and then just tackle the first thing that seems to be interfering with the peace of the household.” For him, it’s usually tending to their toddler.
He adds that stopping your wife from what she’s doing and forcing her to delegate tasks just adds more responsibility for her. Really, the actual solution is much simpler.
