Are your children assigned chores?

March 28, 2018

In the minds of many people, there is a deeply rooted stereotype phrase that daily housekeeping destroys love and mutual understanding between the marriage partners. Sometimes it even happens that a loving couple can divorce, on the background of misunderstanding in home affairs, because these bring about quarrels, scandals, which ultimately negatively affect the stability and harmony of relationships. 

But you will agree that daily housekeeping is all our life because from small scenes and situations form a single picture, a certain interconnection, including among the partners. Indeed, can such a warm and gentle feeling as love be ruined by insults, arguments, and reproaches about one of the partners buying something wrong, did not take the garbage out or failed to wash their own dishes? 

When people don’t live together, they do not solve small daily problems and issues, they are happy together and feel good, shopping for them is a pleasure, going out for a BBQ is a joy. But everything changes when we are close to each other every day. 

Why do we stop sincerely rejoicing for the trip to the countryside, constantly argue and quarrel while gathering things, scream at each other and try to sting? Some couples try to remember all the past insults, instead of rejoicing in family life and happiness together. One of the main reasons for cooling relations in the first year of marriage, according to a study in the US journal Family Relations, is the argument about who should take out the garbage or go to the supermarket. 

Of course, this is not the case for everyone, many enjoy the pleasure of living and spending time together. People are happy when they are together buying products or cleaning the house; they have fun doing together even everyday things because they help each other and enjoy every second of such a life, regardless of what they do. Maybe such people know the secret of family happiness? 

Meanwhile, domestic problems, in particular, difficulties, can bring people closer, make the family stronger, since solving common issues always involves the participation of both people who are jointly responsible for this. 

So, are you satisfied with your household activities?


  • Yes, I believe it instills a set of values like hard work and responsibility
  • Sometimes, or as a form of punishment
  • No, my spouse and I clean the house
  • No, we let a housekeeper handle the cleaning duties

Would you allow pet(s) to co-exist with your baby?

September 28, 2017

Researchers say that babies who grow up around pets – namely dogs and cats – are less likely to get sick than children who live in a pet-free environment. According to an article published in TIME (https://healthland.time.com/2012/07/09/study-why-dogs-and-cats-make-babies-healthier/), in a test study of 397 Finnish children, babies who grew up in homes with pets were 44% less likely to develop an ear infection and 29% less likely to receive antibiotics, compared with their pet-free counterparts. 

Kids with dogs fared better than those with cats. Children from homes with cats were 6% more likely to be healthy than those in cat-free families, but those who lived with a dog were 31% more likely to be healthy in their first year than babies without a dog. Unfortunately, having a canine around babies isn’t always a recipe for happiness.

“Unsupervised children” is arguably the most critical factor in fatal dog attacks on children. Safetyarounddogs.org lists two-year olds as the age group with the second highest number of dog attack fatalities. Of that group, 88% of the fatalities occurred when the child was left unsupervised, or wandered off to a dog’s location.The thought of losing a child to an attack is mortifying, but fatalities are actually quite rare, for any breed. Out of the 65 million dogs Americans keep as pets, 15 to 20 fatalities occur annually in the US. A child is much more likely to die choking on an object. With these factors in mind, would you allow pets around your baby?

  • Yes, I love pets and believe my child would be safe under supervision
  • Yes, but only certain pets would be allowed
  • Not until the child is older. The risks outweigh the benefits
  • No

Do you enjoy the Christmas season?

December 10, 2016

When winter comes and the first snow falls, this means that one of the most popular and most fabulous holidays for the whole year – Christmas is not that far off. For many people, Christmas is full of tales and celebratory atmosphere, and liked the most by all the children. We associate Christmas with the arrival of the bearded Santa Claus, with decorating an Xmas tree with lights, with Christmas presents in large socks, with tangerines and expectation of a miracle. Someone is waiting for Christmas the whole year wanting to make, as soon as possible, a wish that will surely happen. Someone’s wish comes true precisely on the Christmas Eve: they get the present. By the way, Americans spend around $900 on Christmas presents! They in advance make gift lists that include about 20 positions.

Yet for some people, Christmas is a normal day, which does not particularly differ from others. Except for the amount of money that is usually spent for the Christmas holidays. In addition, Christmas is a religious holiday, which, according to those who do not love Christmas, turns into a tradition of huge tables with many dishes and drinks, as well as into a bunch of people at home. Well, each to their own… How do you feel about this holiday? Do you love Christmas?


  • Yes, it’s my favorite holiday!
  • I like it
  • Not really
  • I hate it
