Lets bring a change with Ariel.

Long gone are the days of only Mom or Sisters doing your laundry! Now the women of the house have so many works to do apart from laundry and household chores. The “ideal” woman of our age is glamorous, sophisticated, aggressive, powerful, outspoken, career-minded, independent, self-sufficient, and sensuous. She needs no one and nothing. She is in control of her own life, as well as the people and circumstances around her.

But the ancient Indian culture taught us that “Men Laundry Is a Woman's Job”.  And some family’s do follow this and teach their new generation.  I firmly believe that it is very important to end this prejudice by giving housewives the right values at home itself.  The young ones in the family watch their elder’s and practice same in their lives and if we want to bring a change in the society the young ones should be taught right things.

A survey conducted by a third party for Ariel reveals some statistics that show a bleak future. Check them out below.

The young ones watch their father sit back, relax and watch television whereas on the other hand their mother slaves and works hard in kitchen and laundry room. So what are we teaching them? Is it right or wrong?  2 Out of every 3 children think that household chores are their Mother’s job. This mentality must be changed.

We equally educate both sons and daughters but in this process of education we show how biased we are, we make our daughters agree that they should learn laundry as they will have to practice same once they get married. Don’t you feel that we are sowing wrong seeds in their minds? Our fathers agree that without proper knowledge of household chores we Indian girls won’t be able to find our perfect match.

If you call yourself as the man of the house you are responsible for proper well being and future of your kid. Most of the married men the so called man of the house believe that not helping their wives in laundry is manliness. They are setting wrong example for their kids. They should be a better role model for their children. And if you agree that your kids watch you and do same then I believe you should help your wife by sharing her household burden.

It is we who can bring a change and for a better future this prejudice must be brought to an end. So let's raise our powerful voice to the Ariel #ShareTheLoad activity at BlogAdda!

 “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.

Laundry isn't just a woman's job!

In 1950's, women belonged in the kitchen or laundry room, the laundry job was reserved only for women, who washed all their family's laundry. As such, laundry rooms were an obligatory stop in many women's weekly lives and became a sort of meeting place for women in towns or villages, where they could discuss issues or simply chat, equated by many with gossips. But today things have changed.

Being a wife and a mom is no job but its work, a ton of work. The women of the house have to go through so many chaoses when she is doing laundry. And why would the men help us in laundry? After all laundry was never meant to be husband's work as most have grown up watching their dad sit back and watch television while their mommy have been slaving away doing all the household work.

Our Indian culture has trained us in such a way that even though we equally educate both our children. The daughters need to learn household chores while the son is taught to have food and watch his wife slave day and night. Now, both women and men step out of their house and earn bread for their family. The women have to struggle day and night with the burden of two jobs one working outside the house and the other one at home.

Now, she is fed up of the tag "Men Laundry Is a Woman's Job".  Men must understand that women have so many of things to do. She has way more work then sorting, washing, ironing and folding.  He should understand that when woman is helping him handle the financial burden then why he can’t help her sometimes in household works. Children learn what they see and what they are taught by their parents. So if they see that household chores are the exclusive domain of women, they will carry this prejudice well into adulthood. The new generation in the house must be taught that dad’s just don’t sit back and watch television they help their wife’s in household chores.

The faulty Indian mentality brings them to a conclusion that women are meant to perform all the household chores. Some men feel ashamed helping their wives. It won’t affect the manliness in you but will set an example in the society. So let's raise our powerful voice to the Ariel #ShareTheLoad activity at BlogAdda!
