A rewarding experience
I must admit that I found it very difficult to tell the difference between the two copper lions. They look identical in almost every respect, don’t they? Are they a happy couple, I wonder? Both of them look a bit cheesed off about something if you ask me. Maybe, the female would prefer to be out having a kick about with a football, and the male would like to be at home raising the cub. As you say, men and women are capable of doing many of the things which are traditionally assigned to the other sex. Although, that does raise an interesting question: Are men and women naturally better suited to certain tasks? For example, do you think women are naturally better suited to raising children?
In the UK, I think that many people accept the idea of men staying at home to take care of children. Actually, my brother is a kind of house husband. His wife works full-time, but he only works on weekends. During the week he stays home and takes care of their two children. He loves being able to spend quality time with his kids, which he finds a really rewarding experience. What do you think about this situation? Does it happen in your country?
Well Jenny, you must be worn out after your hectic work schedule last week. I hope you were able to recharge your batteries at the weekend, so you can keep writing great blogs next week!
I look forward to reading lots of comments from visitors about this topic.
