Working mothers hinder their children’s development. Is it true?
In the hustle and bustle of this rapidly evolving world, literally everyone needs to be employed in order to earn a living for themselves and keep at pace with the changing times. In almost every household in developed cities, one can find that women work, going against the rules and stereotypes laid by the society and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. In, fact this way India will changed into a much more developed nation which is something we require at the moment. There are a lot of women who work and have children too. I do not think working mothers hinder their children’s development. It is not true.
As a child, my mother went to work too. It depends on one’s opinion and the way one looks at things. I always thought my mother was a superhero who could manage not only work, but also household work along with two little children. We have thousands of such super women who not only take care of their children, but also work in workspaces like in offices, institutions or even at the field and manage their households simultaneously. Isn’t it absolutely heroic?
In my opinion, working mothers are a huge source inspiration for the youth and coming generations. Their children are the lucky ones who can get to see their work and routine closely. If each and every one of us picks up principles from lives of such multitasking women and adds it up to one’s own life, we will all become satisfied and content with oneself in it’s true sense and meaning. Not everyone gets to be happy and even lesser people feel accomplished in life. Who can be more accomplished than these women who know how to live life at its best capacity?
Our society seriously needs to accept the fact that women are doing an amazing job out there and breaking any and every foolish stereotype that could come in their way and prevent them from giving life and independence their best shot. It must stop blaming women for random issues. Today they say working mothers hinder their children’s development. Tomorrow they’ll blame women for terrorist attacks, tsunamis and bad outcome of crops due to pests. Working mothers are doing nothing other than setting an example for the entire world and contributing towards the development and advancement of the society that really requires it. So let’s thank all the working mothers out there and congratulate them on their courage and patience rather than blaming them and dragging them down.
