English IV-3 2 November 2012 “Parenting: Are Women better parents than Men” A mother is the definition of someone who feeds, cares and nurtures and protects. A mother will go to extreme measures to make sure her young are safe were as fathers they are looked as a role model and are the bread makers of the family. In my opinion mothers are better at parenting then men because the woman carries the child for 9 months and during those months the mother and her child create a strong bond were as fathers have shorter patience with children and also they are tougher with their young.
Women are more flexible and are known to have a soft heart than men were as men spend most of their time working to bring money to feed his family. Although fathers are sometimes considered better parents by some, mothers are better parents because the mother is the one who listens, protects and nurtures the child whereas the father protects and disciplines and brings money in to support the family. In many societies mothers are the ones who are destined to the caregivers to their children. Many households have both parents working; some are single parent families, adoptive or widowed families.
Mother’s are the ones who naturally show emotion more than a man, a man keeps their feelings to themselves and also children tend to go to their mothers more because their mother are the ones who spend most of their time with them. Studies show that children are more important to their mothers then they are their fathers because mothers are more dedicated to their children. Women are the ones who take care of their children, clean the house and perhaps go to work during some of the day were as the man only goes to work and once they get home they relax instead of helping with the caretaking of their children.
Men plays a society rule where they are expected to support the family and protect were as women also play a society rule where they are expected to take care of their children. Mother’s are nurturing, caring and protective of their children. Fathers are looked up as a role model by their sons but less by their daughters, boys look up to their fathers because their fathers teach them how to be a man and how to support a family if they ever have one in the future. A father shows the daughter that men are protective and show her that most men are good.
Were as a mother is more of a rule model to their daughters then they are their sons because the daughter looks up to the mother for girl advice. A mother shows the daughter how to be a young lady, how to have good manners and how to act towards men. Mother’s are known to have a maternal instinct that is believed to be hard-wired into their brain, mothers are known to be more protective of their children then fathers because mothers are the ones who give birth to their children and are the ones that have a strong bond with their children.
Reasons why fathers are less dedicated to their children are that some fathers tend to deny that it’s their child because of paternity uncertainty whereas the mother knows the child is hers because she gave birth to her child from her womb. Naturally, men are not motivated to invest in children who have the possibility of not being biologically their children. It is known that children do better when their father is involved in their life and that it will bring out a better outcome in the future. A mother is known to have an undetectable bond with her child, unlike many fathers.
Mothers always sacrifice a lot for the happiness of the husband and their children. A mother can have a job and still take care of everything else, from cooking to looking after the children to maintaining the house whereas the father goes to work and returns home for dinner. Mothers are the ones who the child comes to when they are emotionally hurt or confused; it is the mother that the child goes to for answers and to make them feel good about them self’s. Fathers do care about their children but cannot do many things like a mother can do for her child.
In my opinion a child does need both the parents to grow up, at different stages of their life but even in a case of single parent families the child would still pick their mother over their father. Mothers are the ones who are definitely the most important figure in the raising of a family. Although a child needs both parents to have a good upbringing, the mother can do a better job if single with her child than the father. Traditionally mothers are known to stay at home and tend to the children while their husbands are at work.
Women learn how to be a mother at a young age which for example by learning how to be a mother to a baby doll at first. Mothers are non aggressive which makes another good reason why mothers are good parents than fathers whereas fathers are aggressive and are the bread makers of the family. Mothers are good at making sure their children are taken care of, for example a mother makes healthy food to make sure her children get the nutrients they need and also making sure that their children get the proper care of a doctor. Mothers can handle a job and her children without losing her mind because women are more tolerant than men.
