Why do we tend to think a female can be a good Teacher?
Let's talk about Profession - GIRLS PROFESSION
There are a lot of career options today in the world for all but some people divided that into gender. We live in the 21st century but still, there are some career restrictions for girls. According to our INDIAN society, there are two best careers for girls:
TEACHING IS ONE OF THE BEST CAREER FOR GIRLS- BUT why?
Teaching has been traditionally considered one of the best careers for women and continues to be one of the best careers for women in India. Because teaching is one of the most respectable and safe jobs for girls with fixed working hours and in most of the schools there is a dress code of saree or suit for teachers- that is why it is more acceptable in the still-traditional Indian society.
In Fact, you can do a teaching job even after your marriage.
(SANSKARI NAUKRI or SARKARI NAUKRI)
Probably preferred Bank PO or Clerical jobs - these jobs have Stability, Safety, and Security.
Government jobs are Pensionable till death, Corruption- shhh I am not trying to tell you something illegal here, you can even survive without any specific skill. And the most important of course for Rishtas, you can actually get a lot of good marriage proposals if you are a government employee.
CRITICISING THE MENTALITY OF PEOPLE !!
Let me clear one thing here: I'm not criticising any profession at all, teaching is actually one of the toughest jobs. Teacher means Guru and everyone can't be a GURU. I'm here criticising the mentality of some people who think that these two are the only perfect careers for girls.
DON'T BE SO JUDGEMENTAL
In Fact, it's completely fine if your girl is breaking the chain by making different career choices. Support her and try to understand what she wants from her life. And yes please don’t demotivate her by judging her choices.
NOW IT’S TIME TO BREAK THE STEREOTYPE !!
Let's break the stereotypes of our still- Traditional Indian Society TOGETHER
LET HER FLY :)
