Have you ever told your child that you shouldn't hit a girl ? if yes then you need a littke parenting correction !!

I am mother to a son who is going to turn 2 in jan. Though I have a long way to go now but I am determined of the values I want him to inculcate and one among them is gender equality.

I being a normal human, cannot stand gender inequality, judging a person because of his gender makes no sense to me. My brain burns to ashes when someone makes a lame joke like one day il have a daughter in law who will take the responsibility of the house ! like seriously ?? Do I really need to wait for that ? or can't I just teach my son how to be responsible towards household matters also.

Well, I think the best way to teach the kids is to follow the same. Me and my husband we both are working and share house responsibilities equally. My son now knows that his mom goes to office and will come by 7pm, which simply means he should be used to a woman working and following her passiom rather than raising a man child in the name of a husband !!

My son sees his father folding clothes, making bed, giving him bath while I prepare his tiffin and breakfast. Many people think boys learning cooking is something cool and responsible. Honestly, cooking is the last thing Il be concerned of . I mean the problem is deeper. If my son does not learns how to cook its fine but he expecting his wife to know the same is not fine or for that matter it is applicable for everything that comes with a pre defined gender roles. Teach your sons and daughters break the stereotype logics by being an example. Teach your daughters driving, banking, let them choose their friends, allow school trips, and most importantly teach them to be strong. For parents of boys, teach them that hitting any humam is bad be it girl or boy, ask them to respect all human beings, groom them to be a man who has a heart and can show emotions.

Thankfully our world is changing for better and I am sure our kids will understand this better than us. But our responsibility towards mankind is raising good humans. I have seen in many households that teenagers shout on their mothers but they dare not speak anything to the father . This concept needs to be changed !! Taking the woman for granted is wrong but what is even worse is allowing yourself to be treated like that. Just because the man earns does means only he deserves respect. Please stop this habit. If your husband talks to your mother in law rudely when he is upset but keeps quiet in front of your father in law. Just know that your child is seeing the same and be prepared for it in future. Change the family habits for a better future and I repeat again be the change you want to see. #bbcreatorsclub #goodnewsisgenderfree #preganewscontest #parenthooood #parentingtherightway #genderequality
