I am a first time mom, and a child development student. I am currently taking a Family Dynamics class and discussions have brought about curiosity. I am wondering how the duties and responsibilities of taking care of baby is split in your home? I am looking to see if there is a pattern for those who stay at home and those who work.
Basically I'm looking for your age, work status, and how you feel the care-giving responsibilities are split in your household.
I am 24 and a SAHM. My spouse works and financially provides for the three of us. I am the primary care-giver of our 8 month old. I get help when I ask, but for the most part I change the diapers, take care of the feedings and bath time, as well as handle playtime and learning.
Thanks for your input :)
