Hello remo. The only way a housewife can have a holiday is when her husband and children do things in the house for a change. Chances that that will happen, NEVER. TATA.

I would say for all in the house to do some of the food shopping, laundry and maybe cleaning around the house. If she does not allow anyone to do the above, I would say at least clean the dinner table after dinner and do dishes. At best at least keep your room clean so she does not have to worry and or clean your room. My son does his own laundry, and does dishes. I taught him all this because I may not be around forever and you, he will not know if he will marry and or a marriage will work out in the future. So he can defend himself and not depend on his mommy forever!

I am truly the blessed/lucky one as I taught him to truly respect and love his mother. After all my children are my world and I am here today because of them.

Dear Rameshchow... I´ve worked to hard at home, for many years, 10 years, alone, with kids, without any help, and with the sadness of my parents divorce. The kids were very small. And I got to the hospital. Since then, I have a lady who helps me with the house chores, I attend my eshop, kids help more in our home, I go to a gym, I loose already 10 pounds that I couldn´t loose, and for this year, I asked my hubby a travel to Fatima, Portugal. I haven´t really rested for a week since I got married 13 years ago. Blessings!... Dainy

And old saying, "Men work from sun rise to sun set but women's work is never done". I learned early to find an hour here and an hour day to relax. It's about all you can expect if you have small children. Nap time is heaven.

whenever there is a time,if wud be better if the wife tells the husband and children how much she work for them and how much she loves them and if possible tell the husband that it would not be possible for them to manage witout her and so she has to be cared by them equally so for which they can help her by sharing the work and giving rest during holidays ( sort of). So that it creates a good feeling in her and so it leads to happy family :)

wifery duties never ends. Once a woman enter marriage, she is expected to be a houssehold 'slave'. The only holiday for her is when she is sick.

Wife is not a slave. She is the light for the entire family. As a mother, wife she is playing a vital role.

I also heard that from a friend. She says that she has no holiday or dayoff. But the good thing about housewife is that it can be fulfilling.

Hi rameshchow, Yes this is true, but for a women i feel there should be holiday, if not atleast family members should give help to her in the day today household work. As a woman i feel very happy to work my house hold work happily. But if i get sick or feel uneasy then i feel if some one gives me help how nice, my husband will do help me but if he is busy he may not that time my family members will feel to go out and eat which makes me little unhappy. In some houses i observe their husband say what you will do sitting in the house whole the day do your work and i will do my work at office. These words i heard from my friends and their husband or any family members will not help her. Sad thing. What to do it is like habituated. And the woman weakness is love towards their family. So it goes on, without holiday for a housewife. Have a nice day.

Ask for a vacation from your husband. You can have a holiday on your birthday or your anniversary. Ask the house members to give you an off for that special day. Another way, is to assign your work loads to other members of your family during week ends. There's no work or school on week ends so, that would be your chance to assign them your home work like washing, clothes, dishes, cleaning the house and cooking. You can have a an off day during week ends. Good luck.

Hi ramesh... IF you are married then every Sunday you may do all household stuffs and offer that day to her as a holiday. Nice idea, is not it?

The housewife, could never have a day off. Except for a maid. Although there is a chance for a holiday, housewives can not break completely. Because the housewife had to do his job, or work to be collected the next day. If you want to give a holiday, the housewife, should have a maid.

They are their own boss to be honest. It feels like a 24/7 job because they have chosen to make their home and family their job. If they had a job outside of the home, they would still have the home and family to take care of and really feel as if they never got a break. The housewife can have more control over her breaks and is able to a vacation every bit as much as anyone else.

I am happy for your mother Ramesh chow. You can perhaps help her in the kitchen and do all the work that she does on a Sunday.If you have a sibling then you both can be in charge of providing food, cleaning up the house and washing clothes and vessels too.Ask her to get into her room and finish a novel if she is inclined to read.Or get her a movie and make her watch.If she gets perturbed as to how the work is proceeding take a firm stance and prevent her from getting into the kitchen.

They can take a vacation if they really wanted to. Life is to be enjoyed not work 24/7. Everyone needs time for themselves and time to do the things they enjoy. They need to take the time.
