There is the saying teach a man and you teach an individual, teach a women and you teach a generation. Whether religious minded, atheist or agnostic there is the appreciation by most men that a woman as the procreator and nurturer among us, she must be treasured and honoured.
Although it is redundant to state that a mother’s role cannot be replaced in the upbringing of a family, it bears stating anyway; her role is priceless. In today’s world of equal rights where women now compete with men for all jobs, BU believes a woman’s role within the household is being undermined.
We live in a world which is consumed by materialism and greed to the extent intelligent humans have willingly relinquished or sabotaged the role of parenting. If we judge from how animals behave in the wild, the female is always the one to exhibit those nurturing qualities required to achieve the best development in the offspring. She is always the one who seems more protective of her young often times necessitated by the absence of the male who was out performing in the hunter role. The same we believe is true for Homo sapiens.
Given the important role of a woman to building a family it seems a no brainer to BU that many societal problems being experienced are linked to the changing role of a woman in a modern society. How can a woman go to work all day, pickup the children from daycare in the evening with the cycle starting the next day without compromising her ability to impart the best care to her offspring? What time does she have to perform the nurturing role only a mother can give? In the ‘olden’ days the village (extended family) would assist in raising the child, an aunt, grandmother or someone who was closed to the family when the mother had to go to work. Now the nuclear family has come into vogue and its attendant short comings.
Call BU old fashion but many woman based on observation appear to be putting careers and other matters above family matters. Such is the way of the world we live in and we will pay the price for such parental delinquency.
On behalf of the BU household we wish richest blessings to all mothers on this day.
