should mothers go to work?
Debate Rounds (3)
Mothers, or should we say women, do indeed have equal rights as men, though this seems to be a debatable matter in itself amongst feminists. Mothers, in particular question, have the CHOICE to work, though I will be debating why it is questionable that mothers SHOULD work. You state that "mothers should go to work because they get a better knowledge about the society". This, however, lies solely with the job in question. If an individual works for extended periods of time as a factory worker, for example, that sits at an assembly line twisting nuts and bolts tight, what do you learn but hardship and tiring routine? Now, let me clarify that this is all relative to the job we are discussing. A person can obtain a better understanding of society and its commonalities in other ways than working a career, though aiding it may be. I will elaborate on your other points further on.
If mothers act as role-models for their children, how is it possible for the children to emulate their mother if she is rarely there for them? If she works, shall we say 5-6 hours a day, how much of the mother do the children truly know? You then say that there is no reason why the father should be the one to stay home and the mother, to work. Although this is certainly applicable, in what way would that solve the issue? If the norm becomes that fathers must stay home, what is not to say that fathers cannot protest this new order? The concern of salary is of course also relative to the career and financial situation.
If a mother is lonely or unoccupied, it would be her responsibility to make certain that she is not so. I also fear that your use of a personal example is an anecdotal logical fallacy. Furthermore, I would like to have the link to your source so I can validate it.
I thank you and anticipate your reply.
Lastly, in regards to who works, though the choice always exists for one parent to work, while another not, the choice to stay home is best if chosen by a mother. The exception lies when there are not two parents home, however, the nature of a mother is very important to a child. In conclusion, mothers have the choice to work, but if possible, in the best interests of their children, they should stay home and truly raise their kids.
