Educating A Girl Child Means Educating Future Generations!!

Educate a boy, he will take care of his family! Educate a Girl, she will take care of the generations to come by educating them.

Educating A Boy!


If a boy is educated he will grow as an educated individual and he may or may not educate his progeny .

There can be various reasons for that!

He may become busy with his professional activities for getting bread and butter for the family together with many day to day problems!

He may formally admit the children in school but there is no assurance that he will look after the children on day to day basis as far as their studies are concerned.

Educating A Girl Child!


But if a girl child is educated then it is for sure that she will be grown as an educated individual and she is sure to educate her future family and even help indirectly to educate the future generations to come!

This is basically because mother is the first teacher in life of a child!

If she is educated, having realized the importance of the education she will try her level best to educate her children!

Thus an educated mother can educate an entire family and she can change the fate of the family!

Sacrifice For The Family Welfare!


I know many professionally educated women who have left their jobs just to bring up the kids with good education, as these families were living far away from the society because of the husband's jobs!

Many Army officers’ wives are the best examples to quote!

And because of their educated backgrounds these women have managed to up bring their wards to the level of excellence in their respective lives!

Educating A Girl Child Is Educating The Future Generations!!


Thus I feel educating a girl child means educating a family and the future generation too which is especially applicable to developing countries like India, where female children are not encouraged much to get educated in rural parts.

Now the things are changing and girls are getting educated by going to local schools and colleges.

Still lot is left to be done in India!

An Educated Girl Child Is A Strong Foundation For Future Society!!


An educated girl child will be a strong foundation for her future family and she can altogether change the fate of her family and also the future Generations to come.

So in my opinion for female children education should be encouraged by all possible means by keeping in view the betterment of the family, society and country as a whole!.

What do you feel ? Please Respond! Thanks!

It is the typical thinking of an Indian.It is only partly true.You might have also heard that " once a father is gone, the education is gone'. Thus a father plays a vital role in educating the children.If a mother helps her children in doing their home work, a father equally plays an important role in bearing the educational expenses of the child.In the western society, you cannot say that educating a girl child means educating the future generations generations.In fact both father and mother are equally important in educating their children regardless of their sex.Even in India, when both parents are employed, children are normally neglected.Only in the case of educated house wives, they pay their attention to their children.To have an all round growth of the society, children (both boys and girls) must be educated.Sir, these are my personal views and I am not opposed to girls education.Thank you for sharing a thought provoking article.

Mother is the first teacher of a Child! I have seen many business families where they have lot of money but since the mother is illiterate the children are sent to tuitions at a very tendor age of 4 or 5 which is not good! Since a child spendsmaximum time with mother an educated can make a lot of difference in child's over all personality ! I appeciate your frank views! Thanks a lot for reading and commenting in an eloborative manner!

The Social structure here in India is bit different especially in rural India where girl child was suppressed for a long time! Now the things are getting better with time and awareness! These local problems can be tackled if a girl child is educated as she can teach the lessons to future generations as a mother is the first teacher of a child! Thanks a lot!

Unique thought .In my view there should not be any discrimination in providing education to kids whether they are boys or girls .It is very difficult to see an educated girl staying in the house just to look at her kids .Unique but a bit provocative .Lol. Thank you for sharing .jk

Yes, but then I have seen many families progressing in the Society becauseof educated mothers within a single generation! I have both the type of families in front of me and I can see the difference! Thanks a lot for the interest shown and commenting dear jk !

I agree Rao but, sometimes, educated mother gets preoccupied with her career. Now in Asian societies they have grandparents to fall back upon, but in matter of time the children inherit wealth without the love at home from their absent mothers. Agreed , it is a sacrifice in the end to find the right balance between education, pursuing a job and looking after children. The fathers should chip in like in western societies to make a level playing field - siva

That is very true dear Siva Sir! But even then, just a educated mother's presence in the home makes a lot of difference in the family! The children belonging to such families are much ahead in every field of life, when we compare them with the children coming from a home where the mother is illiterate! Yes, things are changing and unfortunately today the urban problems are different than the rural problems and they are required to be tackled in a different way! Thanks a lot for a thoughtful comment sir!

I could not agree with you more! A educated mother will influence their children in so many ways and being educated to me, does not mean you must have attended college or a trade school for you, as a mother (or a future mother) to self educate yourself and improve things for the next generation to come. I was very lucky to be able to be home with my children for most of their lives, minus a few years. I now get my grandson (2 years old) 3 days a week and it has been a absolute joy to teach him things that will help him further his educational career. I feel as some have said, it takes the whole family but, I also get your point. The mother is (usually) the main influence in their lives, so a educated mother to me, shows their kids(boy & girls) they too can strive and then pass that on to the next generation and so on, that is how you improve each generation that comes after you. Valid points. Thank you for sharing.:)

I think it's very important to educate girls and boys in order to assure better future. I'm from Morocco and I can tell that I can see huge difference between educated mothers and those who are not. If you go to rural areas you'll see that the birth rate is really high and when you look about the reason why you find that the majority of these women are illiterate. Some of them have more than 8 children. Not only that even their health is worse. So, if you educate a girl for sure non of these will happen and only the good things is for the family and society at large.
