How you can make sure that your spouse’s education and talent aren’t being wasted ?

Many men are married to highly educated women who have chosen to take a back seat from their careers in order to invest time and energy in bringing up their family well by being homemakers. This is the heart of Indian culture, and we are grateful to them for the great work they do at parenting.However, it’s very common for them to feel upset, depressed, and frustrated, especially when the kids grow up and start going to school full-time, because they find they are trapped at home the entire day and find it hard to find personally meaningful tasks to perform because they are at home.This hurts, especially when they see so many of their college friends working in highly remunerative, prestigious jobs—jobs she could have been doing if she hadn’t put her family first!

This is the heart of Indian culture, and we are grateful to them for the great work they do at parenting.However, it’s very common for them to feel upset, depressed, and frustrated, especially when the kids grow up and start going to school full-time, because they find they are trapped at home the entire day and find it hard to find personally meaningful tasks to perform because they are at home.This hurts, especially when they see so many of their college friends working in highly remunerative, prestigious jobs—jobs she could have been doing if she hadn’t put her family first!

She resents the fact that she’s trapped at home, whereas she could have done so well professionally if she’d been allowed to pursue a career. And you feel guilty about this sometimes, partly because she’s stuck in this role because she happens to be a woman! The only reason you have the freedom to go out and earn a living is because you are a man, even though she may be more intelligent and talented than you are!

She is stuck at home taking care of the kids, which is fine when the kids are small, but as the kids grow older and become more independent, she finds herself getting bored and wants to be able to go back into the world of work. But she finds it very difficult to get a job, partly because she’s taken such a long break, and her skills may have become outdated and irrelevant.

You find that she’s quite depressed and unhappy because she is wondering what she’s doing with her life while you get promotions and salary hikes. She needs to depend on you for spending money, and this also hurts her self-esteem because she knows she is capable of earning for herself! To add meaning to her life, she looks for opportunities in the form of volunteering or social service, but this is just a stop-gap measure, and often she just wastes her entire day watching TV serials or playing cards with friends.

And you know it’s such a waste of such a fine brain, and you feel sorry for her and guilty as well.
Here’s a solution that will help her to continue staying at home while feeling extremely good about herself because she can earn money, take care of her kids, and deploy her talents as well. The best way to do this is to set up a community-based digital learning centre for the neighbourhood kids in your home or an office in the neighbourhood. She already has the education required to be able to teach, and you definitely do not need a BEd degree to do this! All you require is love and care for kids and a PC which is connected to the internet, because the world’s best teachers all teach online, and many of these resources are free and mapped to the curriculum as well.

She could take over a room in your house, perhaps in partnership with her friends, and set up an after-school tuition class centre where a group of kids could come, and these women could help the kids learn for themselves. Not only would this help the kids to become self-directed learners, they will also do much better in school because they can use the flipped-classroom model to prepare for the next day’s school lessons and clear their doubts by exploring topics in depth rather than being limited to the teacher’s notes or a boring textbook.

They would be able to explore their own personal interests beyond the curriculum as well, and because they’d be able to learn and teach from each other, this peer-to-peer learning would make studying more fun! You will also end up saving a lot of money because you don’t need to send them to commercial, impersonal coaching classes, which care more about extracting money from you than helping your children learn.

Using this model, not only would your wife feel fulfilled, your kids would get a much better education, and you would save money!
