With more households inculcating an equal division of labor among partners, it has made both men and women conscious about pulling their weight. But it can be a bit confusing for many men, who are not familiar with household duties, to know what exactly to do around the house. Out of this genuine want to help, many dads often end up asking a very useless question, "Is there anything I can do?"

Instead, a simple look around the house will clarify what can be done. A TikTok dad - who goes by @dadwise.co on the platform - has come out with a new video to give dads some advice. The video captioned, "Dads stop doing this. Take initiative and ownership over your household and SEE what needs to be done instead of asking," has gained over 338.4k views and 33.6k likes on the platform with over 621 comments.

The video begins with the creator giving a "quick tip" to dads. He says, "We need to stop asking our wives if there's anything we can do to help." He suggests that they can simply look around the house, gauge what needs to be done and then start working on something that looks urgent. The man in the video, being a father himself, gives his own example of handling his toddler as soon as he comes home. For him, it's the most critical task.

Moreover, he suggests that dads should take the initiative instead of waiting for their wives to "delegate" work to make their life easier. For instance, if there are dirty dishes in the sink, wash them. Similarly, if children are acting up, dads can always gather them up and take them outside so they can play around. After giving a couple more suggestions on how they can contribute, he ends the video by saying, "Look around. Use your eyes. Look alive, dads. Participate. Best you know how, to the best of your abilities." The video resonated with people on the platform and they shared their thoughts in the comments section.

@rehannen referenced the popular animated movie "Lion King," saying, "Look around Simba. Everything the light touches is your kingdom." Another user, @caitlinma87, chimed in: "Thank you for this! Having to tell husbands what needs to be done only adds to our mental load." @s_918_ hilariously pointed out, "If they aren't doing this, it's cause they don't want to. They know if they ask, their wife will just be annoyed and say, 'Nothing.'"

Some wives shared that their husbands were proactive in managing household tasks. @useridgaf219 commented, "My husband comes home and instantly starts engaging with our toddler. As a stay-at-home mom, it's really all I need help with at the end of the day." @mikeolson4653 commended the man's advice, saying, "Isn't this what love is? If your spouse doesn't help you, do they honestly LOVE you? This here is real, man!" Many users also wanted the video to appear on other dads' feeds. @spanglish.mom commented, "You need to start the intro talking about cars and some other bs, then switch so it can be on HIS FYP."

The father's simple yet meaningful advice can go a long way in creating better dynamics at home.
