I enjoy involving myself in discussions around twisted questions. In some instances, the question will be simple, yet the answer can be twisted and complicated. This article is about a straightforward question.
There are three roles. Each role is lead by a woman
1 – Mother of the child
2 – Principal of a school
3 – Minister of state for child welfare
Imagine that you are a third person thinking about the development of a random child. Which role according to you is more important for the development of a child?
A few things to know:
The mother of a single child can give her everything to the child. The child will naturally get undivided and full attention.
The school principal will have to take care of 500 children. It is her responsibility to make sure the students meet educational expectations, efficiently administer school’s operations, and be a personal mentor to few. The principal’s work and practices will have an impact circle of 500 students.
The minister of state for child welfare is a person who will have many things on her plate: take part in campaigning, attend regular party meets, debate in the parliament sessions, and do a lot of public events. But ultimately her impact will be for all the children in the entire state provided she implements her plan efficiently.
For a child to grow holistically, there are various influencers throughout his/her lifetime. In the list given above, for the child’s growth, which role is more important?
As you know, this is not one of my usual articles. The essence of the article will come out of the comments from you. Our discussion that follows your comments will for sure be entertaining and thought-provoking. I tried my best to give the right amount of information just to keep your thought process neutral.
There is no right or wrong answer 🙂
