CINCINNATI, June 19 (UPI) — Nine out of 10 of U.S. fathers say when they share household chores equally with their significant other, they get along better, a survey indicates.
The survey for the Web site ManoftheHouse.com also indicates 73 percent of fathers say taking care of their children was fulfilling, 68 percent say it was fulfilling to provide financially for their families and 63 percent say they felt it was fulfilling to have a successful relationship with their significant other.
“At ManoftheHouse.com, we know how much fathers care about taking care of their homes and families and how they are increasingly turning to the Internet for information on how to do all the things they are expected to do these days,” Craig J. Heimbuch, editor in chief of Man of the House says in a statement. “Man of the House was created as a guide for the jack of all trades trying to be better at work and at home, as a father and as a husband.”
As fathers take on more household tasks, 49 percent report they look to the Internet for help and instruction such as buying school supplies, talking to their child about important issues or what to make for school lunches.
The survey was conducted by Kelton Research June 4-10. The margin of error is 3.1 percentage points.
