#ShareTheLoad responsibly!

What we often come to see in the society at a large is that the household activities are largely being seen as the tasks and the responsibilities of the women, and such prejudices are being passed and thought  in the similar fashion by the future generations as well. They are quite forced to think on the same lines as they see and learn from the elders and other members around themselves, that girls should take up the household responsibilities no matter if they are working or not, or busy with some other work elsewhere. These are all due to lots of prejudices prevailing in the society as to teach the girls all of the household activities so that she can take of her family marriage such as to cook food, laundry, and related activities. They lack the examples of breaking down this myth of the responsibility of the household activities being meant for girls or the females in the family. 

It is important to address the issue as soon as possible and thus create better individuals of the children coming up in the society. It is high time we realize that women hold equal role and position in the society and thus should not be burdened with unnecessary and vague responsibilities when they can be shared among the family members and the work- load can be efficiently divided and taken up by all the individuals in the family which shall lessen the work pressure on the ladies in the house.

It is important to teach children to be self dependent and to teach them how to do their tasks on their own. No prejudices should be passed on to them so that they do not boss around in a wrong manner in future, and shall value and regard their partner and other ladies in the family. Sharing of the household work should be taken up like sharing of the food and other things which would bring sense of pleasure, respect and enjoyment in the relations in the family. 

The need of the hour is breakdown the stereotypes in the society, take a strong stand and set up strong examples in the society which shall lead to healthy upbringing of the coming generations because children by seeing, imitating and following their elders in the family. The first learning of the children starts at home, and care should be taken that the right teachings and learnings are carried forward.

I am joining the Ariel #ShareTheLoad campaign at BlogAdda and blogging about the prejudice related to household chores being passed on to the next generation.
