The art of sharing the responsibilities!

Man is condemned to be free; because once thrown into the world, he is responsible for everything he does. An individual has to take care of one's actions and responsibilities. It is up to an individual to make it well guarded and serve the purpose of one's life in a manner that one shares the load of his personal acts and activities without considering oneself as superior and the other as inferior, and to give their life a better meaning.
The children in the family are the springs of joy and happiness but should not be neglected upon to impart and give them the right lessons and approach of life. They should be taught life's lessons and deeds in a healthy manner so that they do not develop prejudices and live a biased life. 
In our day to day life we often come across the perceptions as to a particular task to be done by girls and certain other by boys, which puts shows the falling and failing of society to develop and nurture positive mindsets without holding any prejudices with themselves. An example to quote here would be handling laundry. More often than not, it is considered to be a female's task and the younger children often develops a mindset considering it to be a work to be carried out the females of their family. 
In the times that we have come to live in the 21st century where women walk shoulder to shoulder with males, and carry out all the tasks, acts, activities and responsibilities, such prejudices should not be passed upon. They should be taught to carry out their works in a disciplined manner understanding the time situations and conditions. It is the responsibility of the parents to not to let children develop any such kind of perceptions and prejudices as this would harm the relationships in their life further, and also that they move ahead independently in life without having to depend on others for their works. The children should be taught the art of sharing the workload and responsibilities. It is important to set proper examples and role models before them because more often than children learn by seeing and following the footprints of their elders and others around. Thus, to pass the right kind of etiquette and mannerism among the future generations in the family, it is important to begin from the parents and elders in the family by setting up positive examples before the children so that they learn their initial lessons right from their home itself, and breakdown on the prejudices that prevail in the society and step ahead graciously by sharing the load.

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.
