Does Equal Parenting Exist?

How nice will it be if boy and girl kids are treated and taught equally. This might come as surprise to you since in the current scenario in some rural areas boy and girl children are treated and taught equally. But still somewhere in the world still inequality prevails. When kids are treated with gender discrimination, it’s not just the kids. Its whole new generation that's been taught wrong. They are going to be grown with the thought that men can do work as they please, but women are meant to be at the service of others. Yes, that's our generation adults aren't we really?

We may not have been deliberately discriminated but it was the way of life for us as kids. We too saw our mom working in and out and our dad sitting with a paper.  We were almost never taught that house chores are not meant to be for women alone. We do what we see. So that's us, the whole generation of adults, who have been taught wrong.

So, when we have kids, keeping all that in mind we try to impose generality, free choice, no partiality due to gender. We try our best to bring them up, ask them to fight for choice, fight if they are discriminated due to gender, fight for what is rightfully theirs. BUT, are our homes designed for this???

 

So, what happens in #AnHourInLifeOfAMom

Mommy is in the kitchen cooking, daddy is in bedroom working, In-between cooking Momma attends to the crying kids, mends the toy, works out things to play for the kids for another half hour, checks the Laptop for pending work, meanwhile kitchen calls she checks in, now the kids wants to take bathroom run, Done and she comes back. Then she hears lot of water noise rushes to the bathroom, just to see it has been flooded by little darlings with all their dresses wet. She leaves out a huge sigh, tries not to lose her cool, changes the kid’s dresses, clears the bathroom mess, tidies up the kids, runs back to kitchen to finish off finally. Comes back to bedroom just to find the little one has applied all the makeup in her face and as usual messes everywhere. Now momma has lost her cool because daddy dearest is sitting on the bed with the mobile in hand and in his own dream world ignoring the whole mess right next to him. Momma says sternly to daddy, can’t you take care of her for a bit while I'm in the kitchen, Look at all this mess. A simple smirk from dad and all he says is, isn't it your job to take care of the kid.

Is it Really???Parenting is a two-person job, isn't it?

Equal Parenting is more a myth in most families which expects the wife to be an all-rounder while husband working at the office is more than enough. We are not here to shame the husbands or elders for not been able to taught right or do right. We are trying to change the impact it has perceived. 

Do the kids listen to us? NO!! They imitate us, they behave like us, they are taught only by actions. So, are we really teaching them the right way? Do we need next generation of adults growing this way??

  • Excellent command over language. With a little bit more effort the command will be total to be a good Indo-Anglo writter Swathi. On content? Just ponder. (1) What will happen to mobility if the wheels are not pinion but flat(equal ended instead of grooves)? (2) Why communism which preached equality failed in China and USSR its cradles? (3) why conono pandemic is more severe in western countries and USA despite their progressive economy, excellent health infrastructure and lesser population density/population compared with India? The result of anslysis may result in practical and viable view on equality.
