The ingenuity of 21st Century Woman
It is a common fact that our lovely women are better mangers of the home than their male counterparts. These responsibilities are better performed and handled by women. There is no controversy about these roles being performed on daily basis by the majority of women across the globe.
It’s just amazing to see women performing multiple tasks at the same time without compromising any of the task. They can be steaming a meat, making stew, doing laundry and cleaning all at the same time.
I have identified these 10 multiple tasks 21st Century woman engaged in on daily basis, which are worth mentioning and commending.
1. THEY ARE THE ADMINISTRATORS OF THE HOME
As the first ladies of the home, they are the first persons to make quick decision about how things should run in the home. They prepare a budget and present it to their partners for assessment and do fine tuning if it becomes necessary. They plan how money in the home should be spent, giving attention to details without compromising the important things from the essentials.
They decide the menu for the week and changes them from time to time to demonstrate their creativity and cooking skills. Men love their wives food especially if it is prepared according to what the men want.
Planning for the kids is a big challenge but they make this decision every day without compromising on other essential things which ought to be done in the home. The welfare of the kids lies under their care and control. This is because their children interact with them more than their partners. They create the home environment in such a way that their kids can grow up responsibly.
They don’t neglect these motherly duties to any other persons. They play their role so effectively that, their kids would not hesitate to recognize their contributions among hardworking mothers. You see why Mother’s day is such a big thing across the globe in recognition of mothers. It is because mothers play their motherly role effectively to warrant recognition and attention.
If you are a wife, are you performing this roles and responsibilities effectively? I am encouraging you to be a model wife to your husband and an example for your kids.
2. THEY TAKE RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE DOMESTIC CHORES OF THE HOME
The management of the home lies on their shoulders. They prepare the best meal not only for their husband but the entire household. As a matter of fact they run all events of the week from their desktop whether playing the role as a mother, a career woman, a wife or a partner. Their domestic responsibilities is managed in such a way that they are not easily stressed out by each passing day.
They plan exactly the schedule of activities for the week and segregate each day with its specific activities. If they have domestic servants, they train them to follow the schedules while they guide, coordinate and supervise activities of the day. They don’t cluster the household chores. As a matter of fact, 21st century women are specific and assigned time to each activity and the role each household member must play. These responsibilities lie squarely on their shoulders and they play it effectively.
3. THEY SUPPORT THEIR HUSBANDS IN DIFFICULT FINANCIAL TIMES.
In the time past, financial responsibilities rest sorely on the shoulders of men. But things have changed tremendously, making women better place to support their partners. Most women now give support and encouragement to their husbands when they are in financially distress due to loss of job, ailments, accident etc.
They revise and cut down the family budget to enable things to run in the home. They give the men assurance that they are with them spiritually and emotionally. They don’t leave them alone when men need them badly at this crucial moment of their life, when their spirit is low. This is a crucial stage where their real love for their husbands are tested. Most of them don’t run away when the family is going through these challenges.
They give an alternative advice for a job or suggest a side business that can later become a full time work for the family. They know it is not easy especially when there is always no money to run the home and some husbands seem not to be concerned. They try and always get closer to them and find out what their plans are for a new job and what they are doing to help things out. They do this in love, without complaining their family values. They make suggestions to them without insisting that their views be taken at all cost.
4. THEY RESPECT AND HONOR THEIR HUSBANDS
They know that if they don’t respect their husbands, it will be impossible for peace and harmony to prevail at home. They are admonished to respect their own husband so that they can also love them and fulfill all obligations toward them.
They don’t compete and argue with them unnecessary. They know that all the sexes have their unique roles to play in the family. They know that no one is more important than the other. They give the respect that is due them and they receive love, care and attention in return.
As a matter of fact, women know that men value and cherish respect than anything else. They know that it does not matter whether they are the daughters of Mr. Bill Gates, President Trump or Carlos Slim etc. If they failed to respect their husbands; they will surely run away from them some day to come. They love their marriage, because they know there is no marriage in heaven; at least, says the Holy Bible.
5. THEY ARE THE CHIEF CONFIDANTE OF THEIR HUSBANDS
They exhibit enough qualities for their partners to trust them. They are aware If their husbands cannot trust them, they will be forced to tell their trusted friends other than them; their wives with confidential matters & information. They make it possible for their husbands to turn to confide in them with any secret information, so that, they can advise them if necessary. They know trust in marriage can’t be compromised
Women know Lack of trust makes most men to hide some sensitive secrets from their spouses, bad decision, though. They Position themselves so well that their men have no other alternative than to tell them what their secret plans and heart desires are. When it comes to information disclosure, men are very sensitive, so most women understand the psychology of men with regards to what information they can reveal. So, they keep any information disclosed to them by their husbands
6. THEY RECEIVE THE QUESTS OF THEIR HUSBAND AS THEIR OWN GUESTS
Receiving guests into the home, most women know is their primary responsibility as a good wife. They are aware it’s possible their husbands may have business partners, colleagues at work or family relations coming to visit once in a while. They create a friendly atmosphere in the home to make their guests form lasting impression about them. They know their husbands can’t live in an island, so they try and create space for occasional guests and visitors. Some of these guests turn out to be a blessing to the family. 21st century women have open arms to receive guests.
7. THEY ARE THEIR CHILDREN’S MODEL FIRST TEACHER
They assist their children to transfer what they learn from the school to the home and vice versa. Because they are the first person the child interacts with during the early hours of the day and the remaining hours after school. They help their children to do their homework/assignment; to complement the teaching learning in school work.
Children sometimes become bored when the learning situation seems to be intimidating. Smart mothers play their roles in a lovely way to provide the needed motivation for them to continue to pursue their education. Advancement in technology is making some children to lose interest in education and become addicted to computer games. So, 21st century women check what their children do with the IPADs, TABLETs, iPhones and computers at home. They don’t just look on, hope and pray that everything will be fine. They take decisive actions about their children right from start.
They teach their child also to form the right moral, spiritual and social virtues. They are very much aware that if their children internalizes these values, it will be difficult to depart from them when they grow up. So, they support every aspect of their school work as much as possible for easy transfer of learning for their holistic growth in the future.
8. THEY PERFORM ALL THEIR CONJUGAL RESPONSIBILITIES
They don’t deny their men of sexual intimacy on any ground by giving flimsy excuses unless it becomes very necessary to do so. They don’t use sex as a powerful tool to maltreat their husbands. If they do something they don’t like, they talk it over with them because they know talking is better than conflicts in the home, but they don’t deny their husbands sex whatever the reason.
They don’t give their partners the opportunity to commit infidelity by giving them the chance to give excuses. Sex is a powerful force that can drive men crazy like “animals”; most women know about this. They know if they continue to deny them sexual gratification, they will be drawn to sex addicted women out there who already have ulterior motives to destroy marriages. They know how it feels like if their spouses continue to give excuses just to refuse having sexual intercourse with them.
Sex is emotional thing, that’s why we need to settle conflict as soon as it occurs so as not to force your husbands into sexual sin (adultery)
9. THEY EXHIBIT HUMILITY AT ALL TIMES
Women of character don’t go into marriage, full of pride but they learn to be humble to their own husbands. They submit to their bosses at work and do humble themselves at home. They demonstrate humility in love and make their husbands feel proud of them. They know being submissive does not make them a fool but it makes them draw closer and closer to their husbands.
Smart women are aware that one quality of a virtuous woman is her ability to be submissive to the husband while making strong alternative opinions in humility. If they disagree with their husbands, which is normal in any marriage, they approach it diplomatically without appearing arrogant. They cut away pride and disrespect in their marriages because they value peace in marriage.
10. THEY CREATE A LOVELY AND FRIENDLY ATMOSPHERE IN THE HOME AT ALL TIMES
They know they are the chief directors of the home. They create a friendly atmosphere in their homes. They make their husbands missed home any moment they have gone out of the house. My wife is a good cook and her cooking alone makes me to miss home when meal time is getting closer. There should be something unique about you that your husband can’t resist no matter how far he has travel outside the home. Do you have something missing in the list?
