Q&A: Doing Most Of The House Chores

Q&A: My Wife Thinks I Don’t Help Enough With The Children
Question: Is there some way to get my wife to stop complaining about the job I’m doing as a father?

Every night when I come home I get down on the floor and play with them. I like to wrestle with my two-year-old son. But she expects me to do things I don’t know how to do and never thought of doing — things like getting meals and changing diapers. I’m getting tired of her complaining. What should I do?
