House is built using bricks whereas home is created by hearts.Family members should share all the matters related to their family and there should not be a communication gap . Also there should be perfect understanding to avoid any conflicts and quarrels which may affect the children witnessing them. Since our values are deteriorating due to the impact of media and others it is imperative to inculcate the good habits to our children. Our posterity should imbibe the moral and ethical lessons so that they lead a better life. For that we should share our experiences with the young generation and enlighten them about the significance of helping others specially our family members. and create a pleasant and calm atmosphere in our home.
Women always command respect by their wisdom and knowledge. My grandfather who was a man of Gandhian principles always helped my Grandma. He used to fetch water from the well during summer using the pulley attached to it. At least 50 buckets of water were necessary for the whole family. He washed his own clothes and dresses. My father also followed the same and he would take every opportunity to help my mother in household chores. A man born to a queen only treats his wife as princess.
Nowadays for every 60 men 40 women go to one or other job . It is a herculean work to manage both the office and home duties. Realizing this aspect men have started helping their wives . In the morning when both husband and wife start for their respective office you can see the tension . This will be handled easily with a perfect planning. There should be coordination and mutual understanding to avoid any conflicts. Both have greater responsibility to inculcate the values of discipline , integrity, etc in their children so that they imbibe those values and grow into respectable citizens.
Cleanliness is next to Godliness. A good ambiance and a calm atmosphere in the house create a sense of happiness. In our house on Sundays we would wash our clothes so that on Monday onwards we would be in a position to put on fresh clothes for schools and offices. Since dress makes a man or woman look nicely it is always better to wear washed and ironed dress only. Since every family goes for washing machine and the concept of engaging servant maid has gone all should learn the way it is to be operated.
Do not wash your linen in public.
Suppose if the above task is undertaken by ladies only. If they fall sick what will happen to all the dirty clothes? They would be accumulated in the bin. Instead of waiting for ladies to recover if men they take care of washing them with the help of the washing machine not only ladies would have a great sigh of relief but also they would feel happy .This point should be stressed by the head of the family usually a man so that their children , both boys and girls would follow suit . Elders should teach the youngsters about the sharing the household chores to mitigate the burdens faced by the ladies.
Catch them young to teach good values.
Nowadays physical labor is looked down by the present generation . They do not understand the necessity of doing some manual work as it amounts to perform exercises for our body. It is always fun and pleasant thing to do the household chores as this would lead to more and more happiness and peacefulness in our homes. Ladies who always take care of these things would harbor grouses and grievances with the result they may lead to sickness in the long run. Hence it is always advisable to share the work and enjoy the social life fully.
