Both Parents Should Assume Equal Responsibility in Raising Kids

0 Comment

It is advisable that parents present a better perception of life to their children according to Sclafani (2004). The only way through achieving this goal is ensuring that they take full responsibility of their children lives. For instance, when the child goes to school the first time, he/she will perceive the teacher as he/she perceives his/her parents. If he is a male teacher then the child will perceive him the way he/she perceives his/her father. If she is a female teacher the child perception of the teacher is the same he/she perceives the mother. It is the responsibility of both parents to present what is right and connect it with love which is the foundation of a good family. It is through this parents love and responsibility that the child will be able to transfer the same in their families in the future. Thus it can be argued that the issue of parents’ responsibility is a continuous aspect of life which never comes to a halt.
According to Sonna (2006), it is important that parents take continuous responsibility until their children get married as marriage is regarded as the inheritance of love from both father and mother. Through their parents, children learn how to love themselves and others. it is through this they are able to develop a love for their spouse in the future. If both parents never played their part better in taking care of this responsibility regarding love, then it is definite that the same will happen to the child’s life. This is because it is in receiving that we learn to give and this completes a responsible individual in the society.
It is important that both parents take equal responsibility for their children. This idea can be attributed to the fact that raising children responsibly is among the difficult jobs. The issue of taking child responsibility today appears more complex due to the diminishing aspect of the extended families. In order to avoid the complexity, it is the responsibility of each of the two parents to play their roles in raising the child. For the mother, responsibility begins immediately after conception. This is because she has to ensure good health of the unborn baby.
