One topic women ask me about all the time is the frustration over getting the men in our lives to chip in at home. I was reading this Shel Silverstein's poem to my kids ("If you have to dry the dishes, and you drop one on the floor, maybe they won't let you dry the dishes anymore!") and had an epiphany: Life's easier when you're okay with a few broken dishes. Especially when it's particularly crazy, like the holiday season.
Here's a secret: Men have been using this tactic for years. They'll "drop a dish" so our Home Control Disease kicks in and we take over. Watch more on the housework battle.
