In his post, he advised men to help their wives out with chores and taking care of their children at home. He added that men should stop believing that house chores are for women alone.
He wrote: "She's 6 now. She was 3 here and loved to spend inordinate hours on the back. There were two backs in the house so her mama and I took turns. Guys, it's our work too. Not just "women's work" like you've been socialized to believe for so long."
