Mom Gets Criticized For Teaching Her Son That “Household Work Isn’t Just For Women”

“I teach my son to cook and do household chores. Why? Because household work isn’t just for women.”

This is what mom-of-two Nikkole Paulun from Monroe, Michigan wrote on Facebook recently. The post was accompanied by pictures of her 6-year-old son Lyle doing the laundry, loading the dishwasher, and cooking on the stove. It’s since been liked more than 143k times and shared by over 57k people, but while Paulun has received a lot of praise for attempting to destroy heteronormative stereotypes, she’s also received criticism for treating her children like “slaves.” The 22-year-old mom, who once appeared on MTV reality show 16 and Pregnant, defended her statements, but opinions seem to be divided. What do you think?
