Children should be motivated to do petty works themselvesWe are entering the age of great automation. There are a variety of gadgets to help us in household work. Verbal commands like 'Alexa, switch off the light' are becoming common in upper class families. New models of fridge are coming with a digital screen on them and one can watch a programme while working in the kitchen.
These technical advancements are good and making our life easier but there is a catch in it. The children in the houses are becoming habitual and addicted to these gadgets and they are not learning the value of manual work which is very necessary to understand in their lives. Once they do not learn the importance of manual woking then later they would not respect it and that might lead to some sort of personality disorder also and they will be expecting everything happening automatically or to be done by others.
We must inculcate working habits in the children and teach them the importance of work so that they are motivated to do their own works themselves.
For example if we ask a pampered child to bring a cup or say spoon from the kitchen then he would not budge and simply ask us to get it ourselves. He is behaving like that because he has not learnt those things and always believed that it was someone else's duty to do so.
