I agree with you, it is not right! Parents who don't teach their sons house work end up raising spoiled brats who don't know how to take care of themselves. When I lived at home we all helped with the house work; both of my parents, my brothers and me - and that's how it should be.

I think you should teach your sons to do housework. They need to learn to be self sufficent.

You better teach them house work and get your husband to do some too. Because I believe everyone should independantly care for themselves, and here a thought do you want your son to marry the wrong woman just because she can cook cause now having someone to care for him is a necessity not a joy. I want my son to take his time and marry a woman because he loves her and thinks she is his soul mate, not because she cooks decent food and keeps a mildly clean house and he doesnt know how.

Well, I was married to a man who was incapable of cleaning up after himself. I got tired of beinghis maid. I have taught both of my sons how to cook basic things, load a dishwasher, do dishes by hand, and even do their own laundry and run a vaccuum. My eldest is now in college, and he has a friend that he shares a house with. They both split the chores, but because my son isn't the best of cooks, his friend does alot of the cooking, but my son does the clean up. Yes, boys should be taught to to housework. They should be self sufficient, so that they don't feel as if they have to get married for someone to take care of them.

I believe that sons should be able to do house work, clean and cook for themselves. This is crazy! My hubby got kicked out of his parents house when he was 13yrs old and he knows how to do everything. I thank God that he can cook and help me out around the house! To me both parents should be able to take care of the kids and the house.

I see no problem in it since I have picked up the slack sine my wife left so many years ago and thought it might be a good idea for them to know how to do the house wrok in case they end up in the same position I was in.

I think sons should be taught housework. How else are they going to know how to keep their own place clean. Keeping in mind that all sons don't get married right away and some don't get married at all. So if they don't have the money to hire it done that only leaves them self to do the job. Teaching them housework teaches them self sufficency when they are out on their own.
