5 Effective Ways To Get Him To Help Around The House

Most women can resonate with the feeling of frustration that comes when there is no help around the house. When you have a man, silently expecting him to offer to help with household duties often does not work. This is because men tend to be more straight-forward than women. Being able to understand how to get your man to help you can save your relationship. Here are 5 proven methods that get a positive response from men.

Get Him To Help Around The House

1. Ask for Help

Your man may not be helping you because you’ve never thought to ask. Men are simple when it comes to this, so many women are surprised at the positive changes they see when they are direct. Your man may not be assisting you because he thinks you have everything under control. Reaching out and asking him for help could cause a positive reaction, since he feels needed and helpful.

2. Designate Chores

Distributing chores ahead of time is a good practice that ensures expectations are being met. When chores are up for grabs, there is no personal responsibility tied to anyone. This leaves many things undone, and could cause fights. Writing down specific chores for each person, and discussing expectations eliminates the chances of this happening. If a chore is not done after this, both people know who is responsible.

3. Show Appreciation

Everyone loves to be appreciated. Men react extremely positively to compliments. They gravitate towards whoever is giving them positive reinforcement. As his woman, you want to always be that person. When your man does something you appreciate, make sure you let him know, loud and clear. As a society, we tend to only speak up when things are not done to our satisfaction. Breaking that cycle can build a healthy, strong relationship. A man who feels appreciated is going to go out of his way to help his woman.

4. Don’t Be Too Picky

As ladies, we tend to have a specific way we like things done. The problem is, that leaves no room for the man in our lives. Being nit-picky is a surefire way to turn a man off, so it is important to accept the help they offer. This means being able to be thankful that he washed the dishes, instead of focusing on the one fork that is out of place.

5. Return The Favor

If your man needs help with something, be willing to give him a hand. This shows him that you are a team. Having a team mentality promotes closeness in every area of a relationship. If your man remembers that you helped him iron his clothes earlier, he will be more likely to help you with something you need. Instead of feeling like he is always being asked to do something, he will feel that it is a two-way street.

Men are usually more than willing to help. Once we speak up and let our needs be known, men are willing to offer a helping hand. These 5 tips make that process smoother.
