Description - The Lazy Husband by Joshua Coleman

Your standards are too high. My job is more stressful than yours. I'm just not very good at domestic chores. Have you heard one or more of the above excuses in the past month? In this practical self-help guide, clinical psychologist Joshua Coleman addresses women who are sick of pulling their husbands' weight in the domestic domain. The Lazy Husband is a hands-on guide to understanding and changing men's attitudes towards domestic work and childcare. By outlining and defining various types of lazy husbands, Coleman helps women understand where their husband is coming from. The lazy husband types include: The Boy-Husband: This husband is needy, and pretends to be incompetent around the house. The Perfectionist Husband: This husband wants the house and the kids to look perfect, but he doesn't want to do the work himself. The Status-Seeker Husband: This husband prioritises his career before his family. He believes that spending time at home decreases his professional status. Joshua Coleman develops type-specific plans for change. His book will help all women motivate their husbands to become better partners and better fathers. Just remember, you can do less by getting your husband to do more.
