It is a fact that child rearing is not an easy task, and many feel that women are more suited for this job when compared to men. I too think in the same way.

The first reason why I support the general concept is because of the innate ability women have in the delivery of care to the young ones. To be precise, women give birth to their children, and the care after that is just a continuation of the normal process. Breastfeeding the baby, cuddling him and making him sleep are generally the exclusive duties of the mother after child birth. The innate ability that she has got for carrying out these activities can definitely place her position far above the father’s or any male-carer.

The second reason why I support the argument is because of the fact the women are more emotionally involved in the child care than males. To be clearer, women, especially a mother, usually can express her love and affection towards the child spontaneously and easily, while the male characters generally cannot create such a strong emotional bond with children. Finally, women, especially mothers are better communicators, and can understand the likes and dislikes of children than their male counterparts.

To conclude, it is clear that women not only have a physiological advantage in child rearing, but also have a clear emotional dominance over men in case of bringing up children. This is more true in case of a mother.
