In a school in the city of Vigo, Spain, boys are learning various household tasks.
The school administration confirms that there are no exclusively female tasks and that every adult man, as well as teenagers, should be capable of taking care of themselves.
Colégio Montebelo has decided to teach boys such a subject because knowledge of household chores is becoming increasingly important.
These days, women no longer stay exclusively at home as they did in the past.
Many mothers have to work to make a living.
It would be better if their husbands or sons helped them because everyone should take responsibility for the cleanliness of their home.
The subject taught to the students at the school is called “Household Skills.”
The students learn household tasks such as cooking, cleaning, and ironing.
Professor Gabriel Bravo explains that most students have embraced the new subject well and understand its importance.
They participate in the lessons with great enthusiasm and enjoyment. With their tied aprons, they learn various household tasks.
“I find this subject very useful. The students quickly learn all household chores: washing clothes, doing dishes, ironing, and cooking,” explains the professor.
He adds that parents are also very satisfied and thank the school administration for this excellent initiative.
The school regularly shares photos and posts on its official Facebook page to show how the lessons in Household Skills are conducted.
