Abstract:
Parenting is the process of promoting and supporting the physical, emotional, social, and intellectual development of a child from infancy to adulthood. Parenting refers to the intricacies of raising a child and not exclusively for a biological relationship. The most common caretaker in parenting is the father or mother, or both, biological parent(s) of the child. Family life is changing, and so, too, is the role mothers and fathers play at work and at home. Women’s role in the community and at home have been changing rapidly. Traditionally, men and women had well-defined roles without much overlapping or trespassing. Mostly women were confined to home playing their roles as mother and care-taker. But women’s rights, education, and gender equality has changed the scenario. Pursuance of quality life, better living standard, cost of living has compelled women to become economic contributors of the home. However, in urban families especially where both parents are working, egalitarian roles are being observed. In this context, a study is undertaken to study the satisfaction levels of urban parents in performing roles. The sample of 40 parents (20 mothers and 20 fathers) were interviewed using the developed schedule on their role performance. The results revealed that mother’s role was high in spending sufficient time with the children, providing nourishment to the children, ensuring the psychological wellbeing of the children. Father’s role was high in being dedicated parent financially, maintaining positive relationships with children in providing knowledge about society. Both parents (mother and father) were found to be equally involved in educating children with good morals and values.
