The Potter And The Clay Marvel

Here, while sharing the load and transferring the abilities in the progenies about the sharing of loads in the household chores and activities, I would begin by citing an example of the potter and the clay, where the potter is the elder individual in the family and children are the clay. The potter holds the clay and gives it the direction and moulds it, and the clay gets moulded in the fashion that the potter aspires and desires to have for the clay he is designing and moulding. In the similar fashion the child gets moulded upon seeing the acts and behaviour of the elder individuals in the family and thus the actions have to to be properly guided in order to bring up a generation that would understand the need of sharing the responsibilities equally and taking up the tasks without holding any prejudices.
What we often come to see is that the household activities are largely being seen as the responsibilities of the women, and such prejudices are being passed in the future generations as well. They too think on the same lines 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.
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. 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.

Thus, it is essential to learn the potter and his clay marvel to implement in our daily lives, because that we how we assume and shape ourselves, and others.

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.
