Share The Load

In my class, I asked grade 1 students some general questions and got shocked with one of their answer. First it goes like,

Who paints the wall?
Painter

Who washes clothes?
Mother

Who cooks food?
Mother

Majority of students is of opinion that household work is the domain of women and mother alone has to do it. I got shocked to know young mind seeing household work as gender specific.

This faulty learnings has to be changed and erased from the young mind. It is highly important to address the issue and end this prejudice being passed on to generations.

Women today started earning their own living but still household chores remains as their own exclusive domain. The work pressure at job and in home also women is burdened with full household work. It creates an imbalance in the average Indian household and moreover it makes the young generation to believe that this should be the status quo in a home. Children learn by seeing us. In most Indian families, women alone is linked with cooking, laundry and other household work. We must eliminate this thought among young mind and must make them understand that household work is the responsibility of all the people in home and from young age they must be taught that household work is not gender specific.

To bring a change in the society, the first step is to bring the change in every home. As time changes, the role of women has multiplied and changed today. Men has to understand this and #ShareTheLoad by doing household work. Being a role model and setting the right example, reduces the household work load of women and another good thing is young mind will also learn the habit of sharing the work equally among them by seeing us which is essential for happy and satisfied life.

Men please join #ShareTheLoad and help women in doing household chores and pay way to end the prejudice being passed down to the next generation. Parents are the role model of their children. Good values has to be taught to children. As a parent, the way we live is also important. Because children mimic our behaviour when they grow up.

Being socially responsible parent, every men has to do the household chores and share the burden of women. Men must change and his changes helps in setting the right example about household chores for the next generation.

Dispel The Inequality


We parents are the first role model of our children. After birth, the young mind is learning by observing the world around them. We are their first world. They see and imagine the world in the way we introduce it to them. To develop a good, healthy and happy younger generation, as a parent it is our prime duty to be a right example and role model to them.

Our children grows by seeing our action and behaviour. Today what we are is tomorrow's our child view on the society and people. Our behaviour and  actions are going to be the examples and way of life to them.

Parenting is a gifted weapon blessed by God and we must utilize this weapon jointly to dispel the household inequalities at home. As a parent, it is our foremost duty to teach children good values and be a good role model to them. We must live the life as a right example to our child and definitely it will pay way for building healthy younger generations without inequalities.

Household chores are gender specific in our country. Laundry, cooking and other household works are remaining as exclusive domain of women in India. The life of working women is becoming more terrible because of this prevailing inequality. Children in our country got habituated to see only women doing household woks. So, when they become adult, they follow the same and in this way the faulty learnings are passing on to generations. In every home, men has to #ShareTheLoad by doing household work and teach good values to their child and must give hand to end this prejudice being passed on to generations.

Every parents must take efforts and teach their children about jointly doing the household work. The onus of completing household chores mustn't be heaped upon only on women. For the uplift of a family, every member in home must share the work. In many families, now women are going outside for job and sharing financial responsibilities. In spite of that, their status quo remain unchanged at home.

Children learn what they see and what they are taught by their parents. Inequalities cannot give happy and satisfied life. Men has to understand  today's women hectic life and responsibility and must support them by being a right example at home to change the prejudiced young mind about this inequality and to dispel it from our society and future young generations.
