    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Mothers are known to fulfill the traditional role of being the primary caretaker for family members, often limiting their own ability to take care of themselves.  A new census shows that mothers spend twice as much time on family issues, which means her Mother’s Day could be considered twice as important.

    This is expressed by the National Coordinator of Psychology, Marta Vindas, who is responsible for Gender Equity Program of the Costa Rica.

    “By analyzing the rules established for each sex in the family, the greater burden on women in the sharing of household chores and the care of children while the man note assumes a peripheral role in those responsibilities,” she said.

    The proof is in the numbers

    According to the latest survey by the National Institute of Statistics and Census (INEC) on the use of time, men spend 15 hours and 29 minutes per week caring for the family, while women spend 37 hours and 09 minutes, which proves the inequality in the parenting role.

    In a traditional family, the maternal role handles all the tasks involved in raising infants, being responsible for the running of the household chores and is even considered responsible for the happiness of the marriage and family harmony.

    “The role of caregiver is seen as a family obligation. According to the specialist, it is possible that this perception is the result of training from childhood, which prevents them from seeing the bias, which, unlike the overhead for the role of mother in charge of all, each of the members can have individual and shared responsibilities,” said Vindas.

    Don’t forget to honor your mom this Costa Rican Mother’s Day, August 15, 2014.
