She: I cannot pick A from school today. Can you?

He You always put me in such situations at work at the last moment! I have a meeting.

She: Can you call A to let him know to wait?

He: Why me, you do it? (He is gettin smarter that women in this world USE good men as husbands)

She: Ok I will, but will you drop B to Field Hockey tomorrow at 2:30 PM?

He: WTF is going on? You work, I work. How do you suppose that I do all this after 2 PM picking and dropping of kids?

She: I am just asking. Do you want to drop them in the morning instead?

He: $U($%(&$

A man is domesticated. 

Its a scandal, in the name of marriage, mostly meant to exploit decent husbands/man in the animal kingdom.

random awakenings, 
TS.

Case A. You are the one going to pick A up 10’min late so it’s better you start communicating that to him so that you don’t need to use your wife for any change of status. Only makes sense.

Case B. Key phrase. You work I work. So one drops in the morning and one picks in the afternoon. Be glad she is giving an option.  

Her only fault - micromanaging you. She shouldn’t need to. Your kid, you should be a step ahead of tasks. Don’t shirk away basic responsibilities under big words like domesticated man. And if you still wanna use it, just remember that she’s a working woman. Old rules don’t apply to either one.

I think differently. 

But I also realize this:

You think differently.

A thinks differently.

B thinks differently.

And

She thinks differently.

We all think differently.

When I do my part, I do not "publicize" it. If I have to work extra 5 hours for it, I do not try to manage it asking for others. For example, if I have to mow the lawn, or change the blinds, or change the faucet, or do the taxes, I do not publicize my work. I just do it, for whatever it takes.

Do you think its fair if I am used for a task, that is "owned" by another?

I believe in ownership. Tasks I own, I do not even let others come to know what I went through to make it happen.

But deep down in my heart, you are right - Indian women do not have the "equal" share. They do more. At least my wife does.

Fine.

I give up.

"Either you must have the courage to change it, or you must learn to settle into it".

Hmm.

For a family man - this is BS.

Human life is CERTAINLY NOT their OWN.

I question this take of all Gurus, who are somewhat focused on SELF.

I am LOSING self.

I am LOSING control.

I believe when Sankaracharya was into a debate, back in 18th century, he was challenged - Have U been in Grihastha Ashram yourself?

Without being in Grihasthi, I do not believe in wisdom of Tukaram, Sadhguru, Vivekananda, and so on.

You have to be in the "middle" of "life". 

What I face now as a father of a very intelligent, extremely sensitive, and a stubborn daughter at age 16?

Sadhguru or even Vivekananda have no clue about parenting such.

They can advise parents.

They cannot advise parenting. Or that teen.

You get the idea?

Regards.

TS,
SG was a Grihastha before becoming what he is today. So don't come to conclusions without knowing about him.

Well then FH - What does his wife say about him?

In *real* life, its not about *spouse* either.

REAL life of a human is nothing of an experience, if not without kid(s).

ANYONE who teaches about LIFE without the experience of having a KID, has ABSOLUTELY NO CLUE what life is about.

They are simply FREE souls. Seeking Self. Finding Self.

Self is NOT Life.

Self is NOT Self.

Regards.

>>> Yes, having and taking care of a family is a big part of life.
