Mom Thinks Daughter’s Homework Assignment Is Sexist And Then Does Something About It…

Lynne Polvino is a Mom with tons of things to do every day, like taking care of her children along with the rest of things to do her daily life.

When her daughter brought a specific homework assignment to her, Polvino’s thought it was quite sexist. It basically quizzes the child as to when their mother is going back to work.  Polvino didn’t really like the assignment.

Polvino said:

“It just pushed so many buttons for me, and with each sentence it managed to get worse!…My shock and dismay quickly turned to outrage. I mean, what decade are we in, anyway? In this day and age, we’re going to tell kids that mothers working outside the home makes their children and families unhappy? That fathers don’t normally do things like cook and wash the dishes?”

So Polvino rewrote the assignment.

In the Mom’s version, Lisa is satisfied that her Mom is working again. The Dad is on leave from work and there isn’t a big hurry. The Dad cooks a wonderful breakfast and the daughter envisions her job in the future.

There were some who felt another way.

This really reminded the mom and made her grateful to past generations of Mothers who might have had to put up with all these things even though they didn’t want to.

“I have so much respect for all the working moms of past generations who had to deal with this type of crap on a regular basis!…I’m so grateful to them for paving the way.”
