Becoming a Parent is a life changing experience for both mother and father. For as far back as we can search changing has been said to be the hardest formen. But after reading many articles I have come to the decision that men/women, male/female, father or mother, married or divorced it takes two not only to have children but to raise them. A recent article sparked my want to write on the subject. An article posted by theNew York Times titled "How Vital Are Women? This Town Found Out as They Left to March", talked about how fathers who stayed home with the kids during the Women's March on January 21st 2017 struggled to balance a schedule usually covered by two parents. At the end of the article one interviewed wife stated “He was great, and there was no expectation he wouldn’t be. He’s a parent, not a babysitter. The children are still alive.” The title of the article was the talk of the town alone. Some however didn't think much about it. An interview with by quotes “I was one of those women on the bus at 3:20 a.m. headed to D.C., my husband took care of our three kids just fine, as he always does when I’m gone. It’s a nonissue.”
What does all this mean? Gender inequality will always be a topic of interest but is slowly becoming a "nonissue". We are all different with different opinions and views. The best way to make things balance at home is to be open about those opinions and views andcommunicatethem. I truly believe these two tiny steps will keep parents changing and growing together.
