In some countries, more and more fathers are staying at home to look after children. while mothers work full time. What are the reasons and is it positive or negative?(20171214)
In contemporary society, many traditional concepts have faded away, especlally parental roles in the family. More and more fathers are staying at home to raise their children, and this seems to be a positive trend.
It is true that two main causes are able to explain why this trend exists in modern society. First, the women’s nights movement has kindled more women to gain independence, fight for equal pay, also the right to vote. Therefore, more and more women are getting rid of the traditional and metaphoric shackles that once held them back, and are embarking on their own careers. Second, living expenses have increased exorbitantly over the past few decades. Hence, couples should share this financial burden. As a consequence, one of a decent pay continues to work, and the other is taking care of children at home. In other words, the reality is extremely barbarous that we should learn to face it.
This trend is clearly a positive one for the development of an entire society. First of all, we intend to root out gender discrimination in this period which will in turn lead to a fairer society, which will accelerate social progress and i mprovement. In addition, more fathers will take responsibility for looking after their children, and allow more fathers to understand the hardship of domestic work. This will inevitably improve family relationships. So when we see a man doing housework, we do not have to laugh at him.
For the reasons mentioned above. I think that this trend represents progress of society and an improvement of the social status of women.
