I am lucky to say that my husband helps out around the house, if I set a list or give him specific things to do. My key to get him to doing more was to actually talk to him about it, I was so stressed with working, taking my son to daycare and caring for him plus doing everything around the house while he was gone all the time from coaching. I know it wont always help but that talk really did help him see that little things he can do would help me out a lot. He takes the garbage out, cleans the bathroom on the saturdays that I work, and then I leave a list if other things need to be done. BUT the one thing I have to ask him to do is pay the bills!!!!
