A careerist is described as a person who tend to love and as well pay more attention to his career
more than anything else. A female who displays such attitude is therefore regarded as a female careerist. On the other hand, a male who displays such attitude is to be described as a male careerist. As the number of female careerist continues to rise in the face of economic difficulty, many married women who loved their work more than their children begins to talk about the difficulties of coping with work and caring for their homes. This unspeakable act, however, accounted for some of the reasons why some well-to-do men
prevented their wives from practicing their career. After arranging in her mind, her perceived difficulties in order of their magnitudes, the female careerist on her own begins to ask some of her married colleagues in the workplace how they were able to manage their own homes together with their works.
Subsequent to this resurgence, mama Nkechi, a co-worker begins to tell her that she had a maid who undertakes all her house chores. She talks further, trying to also convince the female careerist that she can't possibly take care of her children without a maid. Mama Emeka, another of her colleague, also unveiled how she pressurized his own husband before he could get her a full-time maid.
At this point, the female careerist registers her colleague's words in her brain, longing to see her husband as soon as he returns from work.

In an attempt to reduce her difficulties, she begins to highlight to her husband, the need for a maid. In response to the demand of her wife, the man begins to critically look into his extended family in search of whom to take as a house-help. In many cases when the man have searched within his immediate family but couldn't find any, he begins to relate the problem to friends for help. The buttom line here is that the man often do everything within his reach to provide the said maid.
It is no doubt that the ‘house-help’, ‘maid’ or ‘servant’ has become synonymous with most careerists' families in our society. There maids work behind closed doors in private homes, carrying out domestic chores including cleaning of rooms and furniture, washing of clothes and plates, preparation of food, running errands and escorting their employers’ children to and from school. While doing the aforementioned and many more, the female careerist would either be in the parlor watching television or in her room relaxing her
body. This is the kind of woman who would have the temerity to tell someone that she is not in any way friend to the kitchen but she's friend to all kinds of delicacies. This is the kind of woman who would expect her maid to brush her own teeth and rinse it with water. This is the kind of woman who calls on the maid to cut her finger and toe nails. This is the kind of woman who never allowed her children to learn a simple act
of washing ordinary plates. Most of these female careerist keep over-hitting only their maid with housechores, thinking they are doing good to their own children by not
allowing them learn little things they ought to know. Inasmuch as I condemn these female careerists who solely depends on maids for everything, I also commend some good-hearted and well-
mannered women who never engage in such.anomaly.
It is not my wish to make this post a lenghty one, neither is it my wish to dive into the benefits accrueing to children when engaged in house chores. However, for the sake of some female careerists who may have read many lines of this article, I will do so. Research have shown that children who engaged
in chores are more successful as adults. Dr. Martin Rossman from the University of Minnesota undertook a longitudinal study where subjects were followed up over a period of 20 years. The study revealed that one of the best predictors of a child’s success is if he or she began helping with household chores at age 3 to
4. To add to this, I would tentatively say that children who are exposed to chores also learn to
work very well with others. If you have more than one child for example, compel them to work on a chore together. If not, you can have your child complete different jobs along with you. You could teach them how to assign themselves different roles, because it teaches them to be flexible. For example, one night you could wash the plates while your child rinse or dry them. You could decide to switch roles the next night.
You dont need to solely depend on a maid. Your home can be successfully managed in the absence of a maid. Remember, the person you called a maid is also another person's child. Why not teach your own children house-hold chores, or atleast create avenue for them to learn from the maid? If they learn from you, it would have been a better option for you.
Think about it my dear friend! For more information visit
