Daca ati putea alege, care ar fi optiunea voastra: mers la munca pentru bani sau stat acasa pentru copil?
For English scroll down.
Daca e sa ne luam dupa modelul familiei de-a lungul istoriei, exista aceste stereotipuri cum ca barbatul e cel care merge la munca si aduce bani iar femeia e cea care are grija de casa.
Insa timpurile au evoluat si femeia nu doar ca munceste cot la cot cu barbatul, avand un job full time si avand grija de casa dar pe langa toate astea mai si face si creste copii.
Cresterea copiilor in sine reprezinta un serviciu de 24 de ore din 24 ceea ce inseamna ca realist vorbind nu le putem face pe amandoua: si serviciu si copii. Asa ca ma intrebam care sunt argumentele voastre indiferent de optiunea pe care o alegeti.
Citeam de curand un articol despre un studiu facut de Harvard Business School, in care se spunea ca fetele cu mame care au mers la munca au mai mult succes, in timp ce baietii acestor mame sunt mult mai implicati si empatici. Analizand datele din 24 de tari, pe o perioada de 10 ani (2002 – 2012), studiul a aratat ca acei copii crescuti in familii netraditionale (in ssensul la care ma refeream mai sus) sunt mult mai independeti si in general au mai multe sanse sa reuseasca in viata.
Totusi, nu am gasit niciun studiu care sa spuna avantajele pe care le au pe termen lung copiii crescuti si ingrijiti de mamele lor si nu de bunici, bone sau trimisi la cresa. Eu cel putin, as putea sa fac o lista foooarte lunga cu dezavantajele pe care le au copiii crescuti de altcineva decat de mama lor. Dar o sa revin la asta intr-un articol viitor.
Pana atunci, voi daca ati putea alege, pentru ce ati opta: mers la munca 8 – 10 ore pe zi, pentru a castiga bani, pozitie si influenta sau stat acasa si ingrijit copilul, pentru a castiga momente si emotii ce nu pot fi contorizate in niciun fel?
If you had to do it, which option would you choose: going to work and earning money or staying at home to take care of your children?
If we would consider the family model throughout the history, there are certain stereotypes according to which the man is the one that has to go to work and earn money whereas the woman has to stay home and take care of the house.
However, times have changed and nowadays, women not only work side by side with men, holding a full time job and taking care of the house, but they also give birth and bring up children.
Bringing up children is a24/24 job which means that, realistically speaking, we cannot have them both: have a job and children at the same time. So I was wondering what are your arguments whatever option you choose.
The other day, I read an article about a study carried on by Harvard Business School, which revealed the fact that women whose mothers went to work are more successful, whereas the sons of such mothers are more engaged and empathetic. Performing an analysis of the data provided by respondents from 24 countries over a period of 10 years (2002-2012), the study revealed that children raised within non-traditional families (based on what I’ve mentioned previously) are more independent and, generally, more likely to succeed in life.
However, I did not manage to find any study that reveals the long-terms benefits on children raised and taken care of by their mothers and not by their grandparents, nannies or sent to the day care centre. I, at least, could make a veeery long list of disadvantages for children raised by someone other than their own mother. But we will get back and enlarge upon this subject in a future article.
Until then, if you were given the possibility to choose, what would you prefer: going to work for 8 to 10 hours a day to earn money, position and influence or stay at home and take care of your child in order to gain moments and emotions that cannot be measured in any way?
