In Most of The Societies, the Role of Mother and Father Differs. What Are the Causes

In most of the societies, the role of mother and father differs. What are the causes of this difference? What will be the parental roles in future?

Families are the building blocks of society. Parents play an incredible, crucial, and indispensable role in the development of children. Fathers and mothers both have their individuality and are equally responsible for the growth of the child physically, mentally, and emotionally. But still, most societies have different thinking that their roles differ. So, here I would like to discuss the reasons for these differences.

In most societies, especially in remote areas and villages, people believe that the role of the mother is just to give birth to a child and look after the child’s schooling, eating, and homework, and the father is the one who brings the money for bread and butter and doesn’t have to do anything with the child’s care. Due to this, women are deprived of working out and even are deprived of education. The first and foremost reason for these differences is that people are illiterate and 60% of the people are still below the poverty line. They are not aware of the good and bad things. Secondly, they follow old, fuddy-duddy customs and traditions.

Thirdly, I believe that in these old-fashioned societies, people don’t have family planning, and the birth rate is high so women are forced to sit at home and feed the children. Therefore, all the burden of the child’s development comes on her shoulders, and men have nothing to do except work and earn money. Just imagine if a father is asked in which class his child studies, he has to think so hard, and even then he cannot recollect. If women go out and work, then older people get sceptical and scold them, as they are narrow-minded.

However, in the future, the scenario will change. We are living in an era of globalization and Westernization in the 21st century. We are influenced by Western culture. Nowadays, people are educated, literate, and aware of things and are broadminded. Parents understand their responsibility and work equally for the holistic development of the child. So, in the future, conditions will improve a lot. Parents will plan things for the bright and shiny future of their children. And they will be united, and the child will not be deprived of the father’s love. Both will work so that they can save in the future for their child, and presently in urban areas, things are like this only.

To conclude, there are many reasons for the gender differences in parental roles, but the future is predicted to hold no such differences.
