  1. Why does society give more responsibility for raising children to mothers than to fathers?

Ans: It is true that society gives more responsibility for raising children to mothers than to fathers. There are many reasons for that. It has been a culture in our country too that mothers should raise the children. It is believed that mothers are kinder and lovelier than fathers. They are more tolerant and they can take care properly of the children. In most of the families, fathers are busy for the outside work and mothers are busy for domestic work. Mothers can balance for both work; to raise the children and to do domestic work. So, the responsibility to raise the children is given to mothers.

Mothers can easily understand the feelings and psychology of children. They never take the children as burden though the children urinate and throw cack on their panties. Mothers make their children such milk from breast. So, they have a kind of strong and maternal attachment with children. Therefore mothers themselves, too, seem interested to raise the children. When the children mistake, some fathers seem to beat the children but most of the mothers forgive their children easily for their mistakes.

  1. In Maugham’s story, George and Tom obviously don’t get along (interact or coexist) well. Do their different attitudes toward work explain why they don’t get along? Is there another possible explanation?

Ans: Yes, in Maugham’s story, George and Tom obviously don’t get along well due to their different attitudes towards work. George is honest, hardworking and punctual in his job but Tom doesn’t want to work. He is entirely irresponsible towards work. George wants to live very decent and respectable life doing work but Tom wants to live enjoyable life without doing work. Geroge works regularly and is worried about his work. In this way. They obviously don’t get along well due to different attitudes towards work.
