The position of women in society has changed markedly in the last twenty years. Many of
the problems young people now experience, such as juvenile delinquency, arise from the
fact that many married women now work and are not at home to care for their children.
To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion?
Women of the modern day society are engaged to work to make a living just like men. By doing this, some argue that less amount of time is spent looking after their children, which in turn results in problems like juvenile delinquency in young adults.It will be argued that ideal parenting has nothing to do with whether the mother is working or not.
It is proven that the length of time spent by a mother caring for her children is important. But then, how she shows her care for the youngsters is what really matters. For example, a mother maybe spending the whole day with her children but leaving them watching TV or doing unproductive activities all day, does not help the children at all. A mother can care for her children even distance is a hindrance.
In addition, there are various reasons why young adults, particularly teen-aged ones, engaged or involved in early adulthood problems. The people around them, like their friends, for instance, can greatly influence them on doing unpleasant activities with or without their mothers around them.
Apart from this, women have helped contribute financially for their family. This money can be of use in sending their children to school. It is a fact that when children are in school they learn to be moral individuals who practices good conducts, than spending their time playing on the streets.
After analysing that throughout the years, even if women has changed from being a plain house-wife to a socially accepted employees, little effects can be seen on up-bringing their children. It is strongly agreed that, problems young adults experience nowadays have little relation to women's career status.
Any comments/suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
