Coburg – increased demands for education and less time together with their children put pressure on mothers and fathers in their upbringing. Often they forget to let their children be children for a change. A conversation with elke scheler, who has been a kindergarten teacher at the marienschule for more than 40 years: about changing times and increased demands.
Tageblatt: ms. Scheler, were parents more relaxed in the past??
Elke scheler: yes, I think so. Simply because most mothers were not employed 40 years ago. They had more time for their children. Today, most parents are both employed, and women often have to perform a difficult balancing act between work and family life. It's really not easy to reconcile the demands on all sides.
