And there are more commercials on TV today that show a man working on general household chores like cleaning the bathroom or vacuuming the carpets.It does seem true that men don’t often take responsibility for mending clothes or taking children to doctor’s appointments. It seems that mending hasn’t been a traditional part of their basic education and men are still nervous about taking on this task. They assume a woman, who has often been trained in basic sewing skills, will be able to do a much better job. Boys who attempt to learn these skills for themselves are still teased for doing something that girls do, so it is probably not something one can hope for in the near future.
