What's in this episode:
We explore questions around day to day living, more particularly, about running a house. We assume our children will be ready to do this one fine morning. Is that true ? What are the challenges they face when they start to live on their own ? How can you help them and when do you start ?
We examine a few stories and see what we tell ourselves about our children and what we do for them and the consequences. We discuss how we can play a role in rearing the child on these aspects without gender playing a role.
We examine the pros and cons of the different views around rearing children in the context of household chores. We also discuss research findings in this regard. And surprising ones at that - yes, doing chores is not only about developing skills to do these chores - it helps them even in their career and in their interactions with people!! Did you know that ?
Finally, we come to actionable steps w.r.t different age groups of children.
Listen and share with the women in your life..
