Since the day when women fought for equal rights, more and more females had ventured into the corporate world, politics and sports. More and more female chasing after wealth, fame, recognition, be the first female president, the world's best in all aspect to let the world know that what ever man can do, female can do better.
Parents no longer discourage their daughters from pursuing higher education or their dreams. Since given the opportunity to go higher, females fire could not stop burning and went on and on and higher and higher and before they realized they had past their time to start a family.
I have nothing against female who which to be successful in every way but don't put your children last on the list. Not many successful female has successfully raised a good respective family. Unless you have a mum or a mother-in-law who is willing to take care of your kids while you strive for success. Not many could successfully juggle between work and home. It would be even worst for single mums and dads.
We could no longer hear tales like those in the 60's about how man meet girl, got married, man concentrate to provide a good shelter and food for the family while the female concentrate in bringing up their children to be a good person, and they all live happily ever after even though those days not many were rich.
Now the tales start with, what is the highest education qualification that I could achieve, how many other countries have I visited, how high and soon can I climb the corporate ladder and most importantly is how fast I could be rich and famous. By the time we have achieved all that, we could well be in our late 30s or early 40s. Then starts to realize the importance of having children and family.
My 8 years old student once told me that every time his dad picks him up from school or a friend's place, his friends would ask him if that was his grandpa. He was the only child at home. His dad looks like he was in his 50s.
Most of my friends that were of the same age as me, are now thinking of which kindergarden to sent their kids to while I am sitting here thinking of which college to send my eldest son to next year. My mum got me (I am the eldest) when she was only 20 years old and that time my grandma was only in her early 30s. I got married in my mid 20s and a mother of two before I turn 30.
Those days if you are still single and available at the age of 21, you are already being labelled a spinster. Now if you get married in your 20s you are known as stupid for not enjoying your life more before you start a family. My guess is human kind will be extinct soon not due to the Mother Earth turning against us but us human for forgetting that one simple reason why animals and plants reproduce.
Thanks for reading the true tales of live and wish the best to mankind. Do you think that we should act like how our ancestor did before and have three to four generations sitting at the dinner table on festivals or like what most family does now a days, having your first child after you had done enjoying life, because not many people have the opportunity to enjoy both at the same time. Which is more important to you?
