I wonder what my wife would think if I outsourced my daily chores?
This would probably come back to bite me when my twins are old enough to outsource their daily chores.
All kidding aside, the philosophy professor makes a good point that often the outsourcing of tasks leads to us just doing more work. His other point, that this changes our relationships, is interesting. What am I teaching my children my children when I outsource tasks around the home (even landscaping). How does my relationship with my children suffer when we are not running errands together, shopping for food, cleaning the house, etc.?
