Next generation And Social Prejudice. #ShareTheLoad

Robert James "Bob" Keeshan the American television producer and actor, once said that  "Parents are the ultimate role models for children. Every word, movement and action has an effect. No other person or outside force has a greater influence on a child than the parent." 

More recently Malala Yousafzai  told the whole world that "Let us remember: One book, one pen, one child, and one teacher can change the world." 
As a parent or elder or teacher it is our responsibility to teach the next generation the right values for a better home, a better society and a better world. Today’s world faces various challenges Be it alarming climate change through damage to environment or extreme terrorism or the old societal norm of gender prejudice. While there are substantial education and awareness being created to face external threats nobody really cares for the gender equality. Gender prejudice is a tradition for many in India. It is a lifestyle for a lot. Women are supposed to do all the household chores, be it cleaning, washing, cooking, taking care of whole family as a sister, mother, wife and daughter. Even when the women starts working like the male member still she is supposed to all the household chores.
So how to change the mentality ?
So how to stop this prejudice ?
If we try to educate the people who have grown be seeing that their mother or sister have done all the household work it would be a rather difficult activity or task.
Christopher Moore once said that “Children see magic because they look for it.” 

Our next generation is going to bring the changes for a better society and a better world. The younger generation with their huge numbers may play a great role in bringing that change. If the children sees that in their home their papa and mummy sharing the household chores. The female members are not the only one who are always doing the household works it has a strong impact on the young mind.

Ariel recently did a beautiful campaign Laundry Goes Odd Even. #LaundryGoesOddEven. This activity urged the male members to share the Load of laundry between the opposite sexes and there have a quite good response to this appeal and a lot of young couples helped each other, brothers helped their sister in the household chores and most importantly all of them enjoyed doing this. These small baby steps will teach the next generation the value of sharing and caring in the family and society. Let our home the first place where the next generation learns this and our society will be freed from this prejudice in the near future.
