Recently it seems like situations in which wives go out to work and husbands stay at home are getting more and more common. In my circle of friends many couples follow this model. The husband stays at home and does the laundry, makes dinner and looks after the children, while the wife makes her mark in the working world.

Huh, this made me think of something I saw a year ago. It was an article about an American actor complaining that there are no baby-changing facilities in male public toilets. It was very interesting, but it also reflects one of the obstacles facing these stay-at-home dads when taking proactive moves to participate in raising their children. There should really be some progress.
huà shì méicuò ，kěshì wǒ zhè ge rén ba ，jiùshì yǒu nàme diǎnr shǒujiù de guānniàn ，yī gè dà lǎoyémen zài jiā dāizhe suàn zěnmehuíshìr5 ā ，háishì juéde nǚxìng bǎ jiā zhěnglǐ de jǐngjǐngyǒutiáo ，bǎ háizi yǎng de báibái pàngpàng bǐjiào kěyǐ jiēshòu 。
You're not wrong, but I'm a little bit more reactionary. How can a dude just sit at home and zone out? It's still more acceptable to me that a woman cleans up the house spick and span and raises the children to be round and chubby.
zhè yě shì rén zhī chángqíng ，jué dàbùfēn rén dōuhuì yǒu zhèyàng xiānrùwéizhǔ de chéngjiàn ，juéde jiātíngzhǔfù shì bǐjiào róngyì bèi jiēshòu de ，ér jiēshòubuliǎo jiātíng “zhǔ fū ”，dàn qíshí wúlùn fùmǔ shéi zài jiā zhàogu háizi ，duì háizi de zǎoqī fāzhǎn dōu yǒusuǒ bāngzhù 。
That's a very common feeling. The majority of people have this bias fueled by their initial impression. They feel it's easier to accept the idea of a housewife, and can't accept househusbands. However, whether it's the father or the mother looking after the child in the home, both can be helpful for the child's early development.
Each lesson is centered around a natural dialogue with key vocabulary directly prepared and translated for your use. You can also listen to each sentence as an individual recording to improve your listening and comprehension skills.
